BUSHWICK OPEN STUDIOS: BROOKLYN-DETROIT DON’T BOX ME IN, POP-UP INSTALLATION WITH SPREAD ART
Bushwick Open Studios 2013 Spread Art and PLAYGROUND DETROIT presented Summer Group Show VI – “Brooklyn – Detroit, Don’t Box Me In”, a two day outdoor performance/video installation in and around a 10’ box truck located outside of Roberta’s off of the Morgan L Train stop in Brooklyn, New York. Bushwick Daily has featured the event in their “#NoBSBOS Guide: Do the D.A.N.C.E.”
The truck had performances by Ryan Hawk, Kanene Holder, Jodie Lyn-Kee-Chow & Jolie Pichardo, Bradley Tsalyuk, Sister Sylvester, Hector Canonge, PERFORMEANDO Collective Performance, Megan Van Alstyne, PAS, Shua Group, Erik Hokanson, Jill McDermid, Myk Henry, and Osheen Jones, and more.
Fourteen outdoor performances occured on the hour, every hour from 12pm to 7pm in, on and around a 10′ Box Truck. “Brooklyn – Detroit, Don’t Box Me In” engaged audiences with a dizzying array of performers and performance mediums highlighting the diversity of Bushwick’s performance art scene.
The video installation is a collaborative effort between Spread Art and PLAYGROUND DETROIT and showcases artists that have either moved from Brooklyn to Detroit, or moved from Detroit to Brooklyn. Multiple Monitors will display the six video profiles that highlight the artist’s work and their views on swapping cities. Artists in the video profiles include: Ryan Myers-Johnson, Sherrine Azab and Jake Hooker, Joori Jung, Ian Swanson, Isaac Richard Pool, and Mark Sengbusch.
Earlier this year PLAYGROUND DETROIT X Spread Art Spring 2013 Detroit Artist Residency selected Brooklyn-based artist Michelle Matson to participate in a one-month residency at Spread Art in Detroit. Michelle’s photography will also be on display this weekend in addition to documentation from the time spent in Detroit.
