I’m producing the art component to Northside Festival which in few years time will oust SXSW as THE epicenter of multiculture. Their entrepreneurship component will be particularly exciting this year but I encourage all of you to focus on the art and check out some artist studios, marvel at interactive works during Williamsburg Walks, and check out the group exhibition. Until then, please help spread the word and if you’re an artist in North Brooklyn, sign up or lose.
June 15 – 17, 2012
Deadline to register // Extended to May 18th!
Meet & Greet // May 11th // 7pm // The Woods
About Northside Festival
Northside Festival is NYC’s largest and most accessible discovery festival. Hundreds of bands, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, innovators, and over 80,000 fans converge on Brooklyn over eight days to witness the most incredible showcase of “what’s next” in music, film, entrepreneurship, and art. Check out past photos and videos.
Northside Art is a three day event celebrating a burgeoning art scene in North Brooklyn. It serves to create a collaborative platform for artists through exhibitions, performances, panels, and our signature open studios. Our goal is to build a creative platform in which all members of the community can foster and contribute to a support system that encourages the sharing of ideas and relationships.
Group Exhibition // June 15 – 17 // Opening Reception June 15 // 7 – 10pm
This year we look forward to hosting a group exhibition that reflects the local artist community and the synergy between their works and practices. The opening night of Northside Art will launch with an exhibition opening on Friday, June 15 and will be on view thru Sunday, June 17.
Williamsburg Walks // June 16 // 2 – 8pm
On Saturday June 16, Northside Art will participate in the staple neighborhood community event by featuring works from local artists with a focus on interactive performances and sculptures.
Northside Open Studios // June 17 // Noon – 6pm
Northisde Art is proud to host the annual Northside Open Studios with 100+ artists living and working in Williamsburg and Greenpoint opening their studios to the public to engage in conversation, education, collaboration, and appreciation.
We encourage artists working in all mediums to register for one or all three components within Northside Art. We are open to all curatorial ideas and suggestions and our team can mediate communication, production, and promotion.
There is a $10 fee to open your studio on Sunday. The cost helps us manage communication, promotion, and printing!
Join us for our meet & greet May 11th, this Friday at The Woods!
The Meet & Greet is a great way for artists to get familiar with the event and fellow participating artists.
Call for Volunteers
