June First Thursday
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
DUMBO’s First Thursday Gallery Walk is June 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 check out Wish You Were Here, an exhibition of 350 postcard-sized original works to raise valuable funds for A.I.R. Gallery programming; an opening reception for HARVESTWORKS PRESENTS: RICHARD JOCHUM, which features two large-scale media installations as part of the New York Electronic Arts Festival 2017 at Made in NY Media Center by IFP; and the last chance to see Postcommodity: Coyotaje at Art in General, the collective’s first solo exhibition in New York highlighting their years-long investigation of the military and economic life of the US-Mexico borderlands.
Plus, projected onto the Manhattan Bridge, Light Year will present “(IM)PERSONAL,” a selection of new video work that examines storytelling without depicting human characters. 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!
First Thursday is presented in conjunction with Art in DUMBO.
