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. Grupo Rebolu is an Afro-Colombian musical ensemble comprised of some of the finest Colombian musicians in the United States. The group, which includes Ronald Polo (vocalist/composer/gaitero), Morris Canate (master folkloric percussionist), and Johanna Castaneda (vocalist/musician), re-interprets traditional Afro-Colombian rhythms such as gaita, tambora, chalup and bullerengue, creating performances filled with energy, history and danceability.
THE DJ. Dan Edinberg is a producer, composer, and bassist residing in Brooklyn. Active in the music community for the last 20 years, he is most known as bassist/keyboardist/vocalist with The Stepkids, the psychedelic soul trio singed to Stones Throw Records. Drawing from a wide array of influences including jazz, r+b, hip hop, disco, electro, 1980’s house music, afrobeats, and reggae, you can expect the unexpected during his DJ sets.
THE ARTIST. Catherine Haggarty, b. 1984, is an artist, curator, and writer based in Brooklyn, New York. Haggarty earned her M.F.A from Mason Gross, Rutgers University in 2011 and is currently the co-director of Ortega y Gasset Projects in Brooklyn, New York. Haggarty's paintings & curatorial work has been reviewed & featured in Hyperallergic, Two Coats of Paint, Brooklyn Magazine, The New York Times, Maake Magazine, The Black and White Project (UK), Sound and Vision Podcast and Young Space. Select group exhibits include: Leftfield Slo & Hashimoto Contemporary (CA), The Provincial (MI), Tripp Gallery (London), Bridge Productions (Seattle, WA), CGK Gallery (Copenhagen), Art on Paper Fair (Armory Week), Paper Paris (France), Geoffrey Young Gallery (MA) and Design Sublime (Miami, FLA).

Teaching experience includes but is not limited to Rutgers University, Abrons Art Center, Princeton Day School, Philadelphia Mural Arts and One River School of Art and Design. In 2016, Haggarty was the juror of The Boston Young Contemporaries New England MFA Exhibition at Boston University and she has been a guest critic at Nars Foundation, Residency Unlimited, The Wassaic Project, Abrons Center for the Arts and Trestle Projects in New York City.
THE GALLERY. Every week at Live at the Archway, we assemble (tool-free!) Tfnf’s "The Space Station." It is a replica, in flat pack, modular, franchisable form, of the DUMBO gallery This Friday or Next Friday – “likely the tiniest, most inconsequential gallery in NYC, maybe on the face of the Earth” – founded and run by Nathan Sinai Rayman since 2013 as both a gallery and an artwork. We exhibit a new DUMBO-based artist every Thursday, and invite the public to engage through a live art component, where the artist and public create a collaborative piece together over the course of three hours.
