Recommended Visit / Museum
Last week my fellow Sunset Park posse and yours truly made a trek up to the Brooklyn Museum for some fun and knowledge. While there is still a lot of heat towards them for giving up the amazing Art In The Streets show, I can’t deny how amazing of a museum they continue to be. Speaking of Art In The Streets, I will be posting some photos I shot from the Stephen Powers/Todd James opening a few weeks ago.
Back to the BK Museum. I love walking around museums and just letting the winding corridors take me where they want to, and unless there is a specific show I am there to see I generally spend my museum time wandering and “stumbling” upon great work that is new to me.
While we weren’t there for a specific exhibit I can presume we all fell in love with the Hide/Seek exhibit running through February 12th.
“The first major museum exhibition to focus on themes of gender and sexuality in modern American portraiture, HIDE/SEEK: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture brings together more than one hundred works in a wide range of media, including paintings, photographs, works on paper, film, and installation art.”
You must learn.
