Bushwick Open Studio came on the scene over 11 years ago and the annual event remains relevant still today. As a veteran of the old Bushwick scene (circa 2006), our co-founder Jason Andrew offers his Top 5 Picks for BOS2017!

Bushwick Open Studios looks to be another huge year for arts in Bushwick! At press time there were 581 online registered events (down only slightly from last year’s 598 registered users) filling a weekend with art and performance. We worked over the very user friendly Arts in Bushwick website and compiled Norte Maar’s 2014 list of not to miss events, exhibitions, and studios… or at least those that we’ll not miss!!!! Similar to last year, all events/exhibitions/studios are divided into six zones stretching the geographic lines which make up the creative neighborhood of Bushwick.
We are excited to bring back the late night!
BEAT NITE: Bushwick Art Spaces Stay Open Late is the sixth in our series. It’s a bi-annual event organized and promoted by Jason Andrew and Norte Maar every February and October. Catch some of the neighborhood’s most exciting emerging artists when Bushwick’s elusive art spaces open simultaneously this Friday, Oct 28!
Latest News: Beat Nite in Brooklyn Paper.
We are especially excited for the debut of AIRPLANE, opened by artists Lars Kremer, Kevin Curran and Liz Atz. AIRPLANE is a new Bushwick artspace devoted to an experimental approach for engaging the viewing public through curated shows, food events, seminars and collaborations.The new artspace, with 25+ feet of unbroken wall space is still a work in progress.The intent of blind spot is to integrate into the 1000 sq ft. basement space work that is coy, that plays with large amounts of “negative”, or recessive space, or that presents a playful challenge to standard gallery presentation. The works reveal themselves upon further investigation, emerging from the blind spot, the peripheral reality just past the edges of vision.
AIRPLANE launches with “blind spot: a presentation of artworks that tend toward a sense of formal spaciousness and conceptual understatement, emphasizing the potential possibilities of the gallery itself.” Artists include Erica Ando, John Avelluto, Kate Gilmore, Adam Parker Smith, Tom Scicluna, and Austin Thomas.
