December First Thursday
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Our First Thursday Gallery Walk is December 7, and we’ve got your guide to the robust line-up of openings, performances and cultural activity right here!
This month, be sure to check out Cloudy with A Chance of Pixels at NY Media Center, a 27-screen video wall exhibition curated by a team of 9 digital students at Pratt to explore ideas around pixelated nature, universal stimulation, and the data cloud as a new form of environment.
Then, head over to Dream Bird, Hatching the Egg at A.I.R Gallery to experience Susan Stainman’s immersive installation of soft sculptures that explores the interconnection between Buddhist philosophy, meditation, and the creative process.
Plus, projected onto the Manhattan Bridge, Light Year will present “Addressing Home,” a collection of personal video responses to the topic of “What does home mean?” from students of the Art and Art Education program’s Video Art Class at Teachers College, Columbia University.
Looking to buy art? Don’t miss the opportunity to acquire incredible works from over 60 artists for a range of affordable prices at Meta Meta Meta LLC’s group exhibition, Everything You’ve Ever Wanted. This show was formed as a fundraiser with the goal of fostering the art community and promoting underrepresented and emerging New York based artists. Each artist has generously agreed to contribute a piece for this show. Proceeds will be shared equally between the artist and Meta Meta Meta LCC.
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!
First Thursday is presented in conjunction with Art in DUMBO.
