PIA tour shows Brooklyn art scene rivals NYC

October 30, 2018Curated Art Trips

Members viewing A.R. Penck, Marks of Dissent at Century Pictures.

Galleries, collectives and studios open their doors to PIA in Bushwick, Williamsburg and Red Hook

Two different groups visited Brooklyn in October led by curator  Brian Sholis who has spent many years living and working in New York and Brooklyn, but now lives in Toronto.  Partners in Art members were treated to some fabulous art including a visit to the Koenig and Clinton Gallery where Nicole Miller’s sculpture Michael in Black made an impact and Luhring Augustine Bushwick’s show Yasumasa Morimura: In the Room of Art History. Studio visits are always impressive and members had the opportunity to spend time with Lucas Blalock, Christine Davis (a spectacular spot in Red Hook), and Sarah Crowner who has since been featured in the December 2018 issue of Vogue.

Lucas Blalock explaining his process at his Brooklyn studio.

Stay tuned for news about PIA’s trip to Madrid to attend Arco in February.

PIA made a studio visit to Sarah Crowner’s Red Hook studio before her Vogue profile.

Curated art trips are organized by PIA’s volunteer Trips Committee and led by an independent curator. Members pay a fee to join the guided experience in addition to hotel and flight.
