These days, you don’t necessarily have to live in America—or be an artist—to be included in the Whitney Biennial. But you’d better live and/or work in Brooklyn if you want to be on the roster of a show coming this fall to the Brooklyn Museum.
Featuring over 100 works by 35 artists or artist groups, “Crossing Brooklyn” (Oct. 3, 2014-Jan. 4, 2015) is organized by the museum’s contemporary art curator, Eugenie Tsai, along with Rujeko Hockley, assistant curator. The title refers to Walt Whitman’s poem “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry.” The show focuses on artists “with an expansive practice, one that is engaged with the world,” according to a press release.
Artists included in the show are:
Paul Ramírez Jonas
The Linda Goode Bryant Experience/Project EATS
Tatlo (Sara Jimenez, Michael Watson, Jade Yumang)
