Art + Culture

January First Thursday Pick: We Exchanged Phone Numbers

Kick off 2013 with a dose of culture tonight as DUMBO art venues and galleries stay open late for the first First Thursday of the year. This month’s lineup includes new shows opening at Arcilesi Homberg Fine Art, Artadia, Giacobetti Paul Gallery and United Photo Industries!

Our top pick? We Exchanged Phone Numbers at United Photo Industries (111 Front Street, Suite 204). For his first solo exhibition in the United States, Australian photographer Martin Smith combines autobiographical text and vernacular photographs to represent the unique and universal moments that make our lives memorable. The work presents photographic moments that are read through the conventions of the novel and film as opposed to traditional photography.
