Highlights From Bushwick Open Studios 2014, Part 1

Sound sculpture by Akinori Matsumoto

Bushwick Open Studios, which took place this past weekend seems to be getting bigger every year. This year, the block parties, band line-ups, food trucks, street sellers and other entrepreneurs hoping to cash in on the event’s draw, threatened to take some of the focus off the art. On Saturday afternoon and into the evening, it was a bit of a mad-scene in the area around the Morgan L stop.


Brucennial’s Swan Song


This year’s iconoclastic Brucennial is about to come to a close. The show, hosted by the anonymous art collective Bruce High Quality Foundation, provides, with over-saturated walls featuring art solely from female artists, a stark and refreshing contrast to the Whitney Biennial uptown. If you haven’t made it there yet, tomorrow will be your last chance.
