'Non-Native New York' Brooklyn Exhibition

From the de Castellane Gallery:

While Congress debates immigration reform, an influx of foreigners continue to make Brooklyn their home, adding new accents, flavors, and art to the neighborhood cultural landscape. Non-Native New York is an art exhibition curated by Linn Edwards and Brian Bell, celebrating the cultural contributions of international artists living in Brooklyn. This exhibition examines the artwork that results when an artist is uprooted by moving to a new country, leaving behind a social support system, cultural commonality, and first language.

Opening Reception August 5 (6-9 pm)

Gallery hours: Fridays 3pm-8pm, Saturdays 11am-7pm, Sundays 11am-7pm, or by appointment.
