The neighborhood of Bushwick attracts those who seek space to create, dismantle conventions, and pioneer their own culture, earning itself a rough-and-tumble reputation—the golden offspring of which is a thriving art scene recognized worldwide as an artistic hub.

Bushwick Local, set in the pristine space of a contemporary residential building, encourages viewers to interact with the artworks, and suggests that they think of their own lives as art. Attendees will participate in a seminal moment in the Bushwick art scene.

The opening reception will feature performances by Backspace Performance Ensemble; DJ Lois Lame; refreshments from Brooklyn Brewery and chef Masato Okamoto; and beginning at 9:30 pm, live music curated by el diabl’ productions.
