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 ITP’s Big Screen Class–they’ll have futuristic visuals on display. UsagiNY is hosting three emerging female artists exploring themes of “dualities of attraction/repulsion and perception of beauty.” And Museum Quality launches their exhibition “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. And while you’re out, stop by Blanc and Rouge for their weekly wine tasting!
