New York City is a mecca for graffiti and street art, making it a very attractive playground for artists from around the world. Bushwick, in a working class district on the north side of Brooklyn adjacent to Williamsburg, has been attracting artists for some time now. The neighborhood has a fair collection of art studios and galleries, but it’s Bushwick’s industrial landscape that’s attracting the street artist. If you came looking for 1960′s Greenwich Village, you’ll find something brewing in Bushwick.

A key element of “Julius Eastman: That Which is Fundamental” is an exhibition in two interwoven parts. A Recollection. approaches a historical exploration and remembrance of Julius Eastman as a master of artifice and features original and rarely seen archival material related to the composer's evolving practice, while Predicated. features 14 contemporary artists whose work—steeped in notions of absence, trace presence, duration, and the politics of exhaustion—both illuminates and is illuminated by Eastman's legacy.

Discussion |


A Pressing Conference brings members of the press, artists, historians, and organizers together to share tactics for survival and solidarity inside a brightly-colored, hand-made sculptural installation based on the White House press briefing room. In the format of a press conference, each invited participant responds to a lesson from Timothy Snyder’s book On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons From The Twentieth Century, followed by an open invitation for the press and public to ask questions and have a conversation about how to best move forward together in response to the current political climate. Throughout history authoritarian states often begin their consolidation of power by discrediting the press and spreading propaganda to blur the “real” and “true,” creating a sense of distrust and despondency. In the sea of troubling news and events, it can be easy to feel powerless but history shows that our everyday choices can have tremendous impact. A Pressing Conference will highlight the important histories of everyday people and events, offering tools for a future of continued resistance. The sculptural installation and organizing of A Pressing Conference were completed by artist Macon Reed.
