Representing Brooklyn

Reflecting the rich creative diversity of Brooklyn, Crossing Brooklyn: Art from Bushwick, Bed-Stuy, and Beyond at the Brooklyn Museum presents works by 35 Brooklyn-based artists and collectives. While acknowledging Brooklyn’s heightened profile, the exhibit seeks to present a multigenerational picture that recognizes the borough’s long-established role as a creative center. The exhibition and related programming take place in the galleries and on the grounds of the Museum, as well as off-site in the borough’s streets, waterways, and other public spaces. Emphasizing artistic practices that engage with the world, the exhibition includes artists who aim to expand their focus and have an impact beyond the studio and the museum. Alongside the drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, installations, videos, and performances are several site-specific works. Through January 4, 2015. Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Parkway, 718.638.5000, brooklynmuseum.org.
