BUSHWICK OPEN STUDIOS
~ Learn more about Grace Exhibition Space ~
For Bushwick Open Studios 2011, we will be in the gallery to answer your questions about who we are, what we do and the inevitable question: What is performance art?
As examples, we will be showing a film about us and footage of past performances. Plus, our resident studio artists Vandana Jain and Kathleen Vance will open their studios to show and discuss their work.
Live Performances : Saturday, June 4 from 7:00-9:00 pm
The best way to answer the question What is Performance Art? is to come and see it
We are hosting 5 wonderful artists debuting new pieces:
Marni Kotak, Anya Liftig, Quinn Dukes, Meghan Van Alstyne and Rebecca Jampol
BUSHWICK OPEN STUDIOS 2011
BUSHWICK OPEN STUDIOS is creating an open and inclusive event that benefits the neighborhood by sharing artistic projects and encouraging community interaction and dialogue. BOS brings the neighborhoods thousands of artists and performers out into the streets and in view of each other, other community residents, and the general public.
The weekend gives artists the opportunity to network with other artists, curators, collectors and other creative professionals and admirers on their own terms. It simultaneously helps build the reputation of Bushwick as a growing creative community while embracing neighborhood residents and other local groups as well as those looking in with a curious eye from other locations.

We offer an opportunity to experience visceral and challenging works by the current generation of international performance artists whether emerging, mid-career or established. Our events are presented on the floor, not on a stage, dissolving the boundary between artist and viewer. This is how performance art is meant to be experienced and our mission is the glorification of performance art.
