Printed Matter (195 10th Ave., Manhattan)
We at SHOWPAPER are very happy to announce our upcoming BROOKLYN SHELF LIFE project!
Coming from our continuing effort to explore the print medium, this installation will feature five specifically crafted sculptures by paired artists’ news boxes, placed near BAM on Lafayette Avenue and Ashland Place in Brooklyn, NY. Curated by Andrew H. Shirley, the artists Adam Void & Gaia, Cassius Fouler & Faust, Leon Reid IV & Noah Sparkes, Ryan C. Doyle & Swoon, and UFO 907 & William Thomas Porter created beautiful sculpture-type news boxes pieces. They will contain a periodically rotating series of independently printed work, curated by Jesse Hlebo of SWILL CHILDREN along with SHOWPAPER and PRINTED MATTER.
BROOKLYN SHELF LIFE will be a year-long effort, possible thanks to a generous sponsorship of the BROOKLYN ACADEMY OF MUSIC. It is part of their BAMart: Public program, which also awarded three other creative projects out of more than a hundred applications.
So come celebrate this happy announcement with us!
