Remote Voyages Explore “Toxic Landscape”

Opening tonight, The Newtown Creek Armada presents an immersive video installation at the 111 Front Street Galleries.

The Newton Creek Armada are no strangers to DUMBO as they participated in DUMBO Arts Festival in 2012 with Portholes and now they have returned with Remote Voyages. Remote Voyages is a gallery installation that transports viewers to “a toxic landscape where industry, sewage and pollution collide with nature.” Transport is possible by a projected exploration from remote controlled miniature boats that float down the Newton Creek, which is the site of the largest urban oil spill in the United States.

Opening reception: Thursday, Nov 14 from 6-9PM at 111 Front St. (Suite 200) 

The show will last through November 23.

Remote Voyages was made possible with the support of the Hudson River Foundation, the Cultural Affairs Department of Two Trees Management and the North Brooklyn Boat Club.
