February First Thursday
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Our First Thursday Gallery Walk is February 1, and we’ve got your guide to the robust line-up of openings, performances and cultural activity right here!
This month, be sure to make it to the Made in NY Media Center for the opening reception of Crap: A Beeple Retrospective, featuring the mesmerizing works of Mike Winkelmann, also known as Beeple. The artist will be in attendance, so this event is not to be missed. Then head around the corner to Triangle Arts Association to meet their current artists-in-residence from Finland, France, Japan, and the United States and see their work (before their residencies come to a close at the end of the month!) Continue up the block to A.I.R. Gallery where artist Parastoo Ahoon will be performing “The Beginning Choice,” a piece that looks at the right to life from the perspective of a fetus.
Plus, projected onto the Manhattan Bridge, Light Year will present a series of videos that explore light, time, and the creation of transcendent experiences. Projections begin at dusk and continue until 10pm. Best place to view is from the Pearl Street Triangle (or the restaurants on that block!)
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.
