Works in Progress
Art-making is a transformative act. Pigment mixed with medium becomes paint, that paint, when applied to canvas becomes “art,” that art, when we see it on gallery walls or in the public realm, alters the world around us.
The construction process can in many ways be seen as a mirror of the artistic one; breaking ground, reconfiguring it, reinterpreting space to make it new.
With this in mind we invite Brooklyn-based artists to submit visual works that riff on, reference, or reveal something about the artistic process for consideration for our latest public installation, ArtBridge: Works in Progress,” to be installed at Atlantic Yards.
What constitutes a “finished” piece? How might a spot of bare canvas peaking through layers of paint reference a work’s beginnings? What kind of work results from careful planning? From spontaneity? These are some of the questions we hope that artists will address through their work.
Works in Progress will be on view at the Atlantic Yards development in Brooklyn through March 2012.
