Art Exhibition at One Brooklyn Bridge Park

BOFFO, an arts organization that uses temporary locations, is presenting their first exhibition, Objective Affection, through October 30 at One Brooklyn Bridge Park (the condominium located at 360 Furman Street below the Brooklyn Heights Promenade).

The exhibition and consignment shop (which holds objects important to the creation of the art) is open Thursdays - Sundays from 11 am - 7 pm, or by appointment on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and is free to the public.

According to a release from BOFFO, Objective Affection "explores the influence and allure of tangible entities in contemporary culture."

The exhibition showcases the work of over 100 emergent and established artists and designers including Terence Koh, Caraballo-Farman, Jason Tomme, Efecum Kutuk, Tom Fruin, Josh Owen, Erin Fetherston, as well as designers from Areaware and Kikkerland.

Release: "Through a wide variety of multi-disciplinary media including graphic design, visual art, performance, fashion, video, architecture and industrial design, the exhibition juxtaposes a mass of independent voices from artists of all ages, backgrounds and interests as a representation of the our universal similarities and individualities that are established through objects."

The gallery space at One Brooklyn Bridge Park is 14,000 – square - feet. BOFFO is the first organization to use this space, which has been donated to the arts program by building’s developer RAL Companies & Affiliates, LLC.
