2009 Next Wave Art @ BAM
Cocktail Reception with the Artists and Curator: Tue, Oct 6, 6—8pm, Dorothy W. Levitt Lobby
Exhibition: Oct 3—Dec 20
Next Wave Art returns for its eighth year, opening up BAM's spaces to some of Brooklyn's most exciting artists including Diana Al-Hadid, Paolo Arao, Olive Ayhens, Michael Bell-Smith, Alison Brady, Angela Dufresne, Echo Eggebrecht, Jacob Feige, Nicola López, Ester Partegàs, Shinique Smith, and Christopher Ulivo.
The past two decades has seen the rise of Brooklyn as a prominent arts and cultural capital that continues to expand. The media and subject matters tackled by Brooklyn-based artists are extremely varied, however a tendency towards experiment, alternative spaces and media, and personal voice are common denominators. Curated by Dan Cameron and running concurrently with BAM’s Next Wave Festival, Next Wave Art offers an insight into Brooklyn’s vibrant contemporary art scene while fostering a vital dialogue between performing and visual arts.
