On view from December 6th 2011 through January 3rd 2012, Where Am I gallery takes over a full block of store front windows on Classon Avenue in Prospect Heights, only one block away from the Brooklyn Museum. Food Lust: Shock Candy features works from Craig Kanarick, Claire Leiberman, Martha Rich, and Matt Schwartz. The exhibition will transform six store front windows in the Heart of Brooklyn into an artistic candy land. Bright colors and delicious looking contemporary art will change the nature of window shopping, just in time to offer an interesting contrast to the regular holiday displays.
Food Lust: Shock Candy will have displays of sculptures made of Jell-O, photography of mouthwatering desserts, paintings on vintage recipe books, and Polaroids that will tease your taste buds. Join us on December 6th for an opening reception at 845 Classon Avenue from 6 – 9 pm to discover art that embodies the phrase “look but don’t eat.”
Where Am I is a new pop-up gallery, created by Naomi Huth, that curates exhibitions centralized around a general theme to create an all-encompassing visual experience. As a temporary gallery, Where Am I has no home location, instead occupying the temporarily vacant spaces in New York City, stimulating a new desire for the space and the location. Where Am I uses the art of local New York artists to transform abandoned spaces, and curate public programs and performances that relate to the theme of the exhibition.
Opening Reception: December 6, 2011, 6 – 9 pm 845 Classon Ave (2,3,4 trains to Eastern Pkwy-Brooklyn Museum) On view through January 3, 2012
