Ad Hoc Art is pleased to announce “Second Line”, a group exhibition opening Saturday August 25 in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Featuring work from thirty-nine artists and filmmakers, the exhibit will include a fundraiser for eight Louisiana charities Thursday August 30. There will be a closing reception Friday September 14, although the work will remain on view through September 17.

About the exhibition “Second Line” comprises visual artists and filmmakers active along the Gulf Coast in addition to those inspired by recent transitions in the region. The exhibit includes thirty-nine artists and filmmakers, displaying a range of talent based in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Brooklyn, Austin, Lafayette, Hattiesburg, Queens, Manhattan and Newark.

The exhibit includes the debut of documentation from Takashi Horisaki’s “Social Dress New Orleans” installation, concurrently on view at Socrates Sculpture Park. Also a study of Alvin Batiste by Ed Pramuk, software art from David Sullivan, watercolors by Emily Sartor based on Walker Percy’s “Love in Ruins”, Kyle Bravo’s “House Conglomeration” prints, Mr. Quintron and Miss Pussycat’s 30-minute puppet theater film featuring dance-crazed Formosian termites, and a 13-foot plein air landscape from Brooks Frederick depicting the wetlands of Cocodrie, LA. Check for more details.

Jazz funeral parades and their exuberant brass bands are usually followed by an energetic crowd of revelers, known in the South as the “second line”. Attracted to the music, “second liners” release creativity inseparable from the very life celebrated in these marches.
