April First Thursday
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
DUMBO’s First Thursday Gallery Walk is April 6, and we’ve got your guide to the robust line-up of openings, performances and cultural activity right here!
This month, be sure to stop by the Media Center to meet students from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunication Program’s 2016 Big Screen Class with their futuristic visuals on display. UsagiNY will be hosting a collaboration of artwork by three emerging female artists with their pieces relating to the human body expressing themes of “dualities of attraction/repulsion, nature/artifice, grotesque, sexuality, and perception of beauty.” And Museum Quality launches start their exhibition of “One Hundred Rejections, One Hundred Attempts” by Yasmin Kunz–a multimedia installation based on rejection using video, drawing, and sound.
Plus, projected onto the Manhattan Bridge, Light Year will present “Passenger Moments.” Curated by Luchia Meihua Lee, the Executive Director of the Taiwanese American Arts Council, this installment features five artists who use their personal experiences in life to expand the relationship between themselves and their subjects, and furthermore to express their concerns about the surroundings. Projections start at 6pm in Pearl Street Triangle and continue until 10pm.
Galleries will stay open ’til 8pm – plenty of time to scope out new art and pop into one of DUMBO’s small shops and grab a bite at one of the neighborhood’s many restaurants and bars.
