The Past Exhibition Gallery Project “Brooklyn Photographs” at BRIC Arts house
BRIC Arts House hosted the Brooklyn Photographs Art Exhibition. It included the work of 11 photographers who have turned their lens on the Brooklyn experience from the late 1960s to the present.
Elizabeth Ferrer, vice president at BRIC Arts stated:
“I’m interested in that dynamic and I have seen so many bodies of work that I wanted to see if there was a way to put them together to tell this broader story of Brooklyn,” she said. “It’s not meant to be a nostalgic show. It’s meant to be about how Brooklyn continually changes. Some good, some bad, but part of that urban dynamic of how a city evolves.” – “Everybody in this show loves Brooklyn,” Ms. Ferrer said. “They want to portray it in a very honest way.”
Each of these photographers presented a body of work on a specific theme – childhood in Williamsburg in the 1960s, Halloween in the 1970s, or Bushwick street life in the 1980s, to name a few. More recent work from the last decade will explore such subjects as the rapidly gentrifying post-industrial landscape, Brooklyn artists, and the microcosm of street life visible near BRIC’s facility at the intersection of Fulton and Flatbush. In sum, the Art Exhibitionwill illuminate the important role that photography has had in preserving aspects of Brooklyn’s neighborhoods and traditions, and in documenting the extraordinary cultural and social diversity that is a hallmark of the borough. It will also reflect the borough as a site of continual change. Neighborhoods transform and new populations emerge, while the essence of Brooklyn’s humanity remains. The Art Exhibitionwill be accompanied by a catalogue and by public programs.
Ms. Ferrer hopes that these bodies of work will show that change is constant, whether you like it or not.
“I hope this show brings out the amazing diversity in Brooklyn, and that it’s not just the brownstone and hipster neighborhoods,” she said. “It’s an amazing variety of life, people and landscapes.”
