GETTING TO THE ARCHWAY
The Archway Under the Manhattan Bridge is a public plaza in DUMBO, Brooklyn. It’s on Water St between Anchorage Place and Adams St.
THE BAND. Tiê is a Brazilian singer/songwriter who has four albums released by Warner Music Brasil: GAYA (2017), “Esmeraldas” (2014), “A Coruja e o Coração” (2011), and “Sweet Jardim” (2009). Throughout her career, Tiê has toured in Europe, South America, Japan, USA, and has performed in festivals such as Rock in Rio (Brazil and Portugal), Lollapalooza Brazil, Planeta Terra (Brazil), FIG - Festival de Inverno de Garanhuns (Brazil), Coquetel Molotov (Brazil), Primavera Pro (Spain), and SXSW (USA). She’s also played for an audience of 2 million people in 2012’s New Year’s celebration at Paulista Ave (São Paulo), and in April 2016, Tiê was the national opener chosen to perform on both of Coldplay's "A Head Full Of Dreams Tour" concerts in Brazil, playing for over 59 thousand people at Maracanã (RJ), and 45 thousand at Allianz Parque (SP). Through her interactions with her band and her public, her show navigates through moments of emotional denseness and cheerful joy as Tiê shares her personal stories portrayed in the lyrics of her songs.
THE ARTIST. Steve West photographs the secret history of the city, including sites of clandestine meetings and illicit art installations and his work is displayed through manually reproduced lithographs. West shared his first studio in DUMBO in 1989 with Terry Ellis, and has been in the neighborhood ever since. He opened the 68 Jay Street Bar in 2003 with Karen Johnson.
THE GALLERY. Every Live at the Archway, Tfnf’s The Space Station pops up in the Archway under the Manhattan Bridge Brainchild of artist Nathan Sinai Rayman and with a footprint of only 32 square feet, Tfnf’s The Space Station replicates (in flat pack, modular, franchisable form) his DUMBO gallery This Friday or Next Friday – “likely the tiniest, most inconsequential gallery in NYC, maybe on the face of the Earth”. Each week, we present an exhibition featuring a DUMBO-based artist and invite the public to create a collaborative piece with the artist over the course of the evening.
