The career of Julie Lemberger has been, and continues to be, one defined by movement. This may seem like an oxymoron—a photographer being preoccupied with motion—but hers is a specific niche that hovers between the worlds of photography and dance. Through her 25-year career as a photographer, Lemberger has built a portfolio that reads like a who’s who of modern American dance.
Navigating tight quarters is second nature for any New Yorker. We bunk-up in studio apartments, do the sardine dance in subway cars, and barrel down the maddening sidewalks of Midtown. Last Friday in Bushwick was no different, and as Beat Nite: Limited Edition unfolded, droves of people filed in and out of some of the city’s tiniest—yet perhaps most spirited—art spaces.
“It had to be one of the most memorable moments I have experienced in the neighborhood,” proclaimed Jason Andrew, the architect of the night. “From the terrific curation of the spaces, to all the spaces pulling together to help promote the night, to all the amazing people that attended, the night was just terrific. And then to have us all come together for the afterparty with PassKontrol, it was all quite special.”
When Norte Maar began it’s Bushwick based art projects in 2006, the neighborhood was a fledgling arts community—everything was new and each endeavor was a risk. Since that time, the community has become a hotbed of art activity, and now even monolithic Manhattan galleries have begun to stake out territory. Yet the original Bushwick—a place of innovation and funky experimentation—has not been lost, and it is this energy that Norte Maar’s Jason Andrew hopes to capture in his ongoing Beat Nite event.
