on view: 9 am, May 31 through 6pm, June 1
33 continuous hours during BOS 2014
Real on Rock Street is curated by artist Deborah Brown and gallerist Lesley Heller to showcase the work of artists who work primarily in sculpture and whose work engages “the real.” The artworks are sited on Rock Street in Bushwick, allowing visitors to engage the work at close range, outside the confines of a traditional gallery setting. The exhibition is on view continuously for 33 hours during the Bushwick Open Studios festival. Some of the work is created for the event and responds specifically to the site.
