Art + Culture

February First Thursday Spotlight: gilf!

Unlike the second half of the Super Bowl, lights will stay on at DUMBO’s cultural hotspots for the First Thursday Gallery Walk on Feb. 7.

This month, our top pick is I EXAM at Arcilesi Homberg Fine Art, the first solo gallery exhibition from rising Brooklyn street artist gilf! Here’s how gilf! described her work in a recent interview: “I’m motivated by all the apathetic, uninspired people. I want them to care. That’s why my work is on the street, approachable, and easy to understand.” The new body of work displayed in I EXAM segues from politically-charged spray-painted murals to the artist’s “eye charts” that address current society myopias. The show runs from Feb 3 – March 10; gallery hours are Wednesday – Sunday from 12-6 pm.
