If you live in NYC and subscribe to any Brooklyn art blogs, it’s likely your Facebook has already blown up with Bushwick open studio announcements (and if not, click on the banner above to be fully immersed in all the available listings).
Our recommendation? Head over to The Active Space (566 Johnson Ave.
Brooklyn) tonight, 7-9pm where our January 30th Artist of the Week, Jessica Sanders, will be showing in the exhibition Invisible Furnace along artists Ryan Estep and Jason Mones. Here’s a rundown of the show:
Jason Mones’ raised fists and clenched hammers coalesce with Ryan Estep’s soap and cymbals and objects-come-drawings, to meet Jessica Sanders’ shoots and sheets, fur and beeswax. The works radiate totemic powers, creating modern mythology born from the simultaneously shocking and mundane.
Can’t make it Friday? No worries. Sanders will also be exhibiting in Feather Weight, a group show opening on Saturday, 7-10pm, at 35 Meadow St., Brooklyn. Curated by Sanders herself along with fellow Bronx Museum AIM Artist, Allison Wall, Feather Weight features 8 artists that showcase “Bushwick’s tenacity” in what can be described as “harnessed energy – inertia after an initial catalyst – through sculpture, video, paintings actions and materials to create an action of works that present space using ideas of language, mine, touch, ritual and removal.”
