AO Onsite – New York: Bushwick Open Studios Friday June 1st to Sunday June 3rd, 2012

This past weekend, Arts in Bushwick organized the 6th annual Bushwick Open Studios festival. Since its start in 2007, BOS has shared an expansive community of art with the public in hopes of promoting interaction and discussion.  This year there were over 500 participants, ranging in scale from multi-floor gallery spaces, street art, pop-up studios and personal apartments.


Oliver Warden’s “Untitled Box 2.0″ installation resembles a plain mirror at first, but reveals a live man inside (the artist) as soon as viewers flick on the box’s light switch. Photos for Art Observed by Elene Damenia and Lisa Marsova


Justin Berry’s “Fissure and Fracture” collection at Interstate Projects

Berry’s first solo exhibit in NYC features a collection of landscape images from video games.  Each piece was “printed and framed so it would refer back to the style of 19th century photography,” said Tom Weinrich, gallery owner.  “Fissure and Fracture” will be on display at Interstate through June 30.

Charles Atlas’s video exhibit at Luhring Augustine Gallery

Titled “The Illusion of Democracy”, Charles Atlas’s solo exhibition includes two video installations, “Painting by Numbers” (2011) and “Plato’s Alley” (2008), as well as new video work specific to this show.  This is Luhring Augustine’s inaugural exhibition to BOS as their Brooklyn location opened only this past February.  The gallery and its staff are “happy to be a part of it” and believe in the festival’s “longer effect of putting the spotlight on the neighborhood,” in part aided by the “huge success” that Atlas’s video installation has so far been.

Jonathan took a series of photos from the Met for use in his 3D renditions.  “We kind of hacked the museum,” he says.  Based in his studio space at Brooklyn Brush Studios, Jonathan also creates short, fantastical video pieces using existing animations from games.
