Arts Gowanus and the Old Stone House & Washington Park (OSH) are currently accepting submissions for Brooklyn Utopias: Along the Canal, a gallery and public outdoor exhibition inviting artists to consider what a “Utopia” would look like for the communities of the neighborhoods bordering the Gowanus Canal.
Artists may choose to present “utopian” visions for the future of these neighborhoods or highlight the people, places, activities and other elements that help us feel joyful and connected in the present.
Artists may also look critically at differing and often competing visions for the future of these communities (i.e., proposed by politicians, developers, community groups, and others).
As in all past Brooklyn Utopias exhibitions, we welcome a mix of celebratory and critical work, and visionary proposals as well as those that involve direct participation or action.
Projects in all media are welcome, we also encourage projects that engage with OSH’s unique history and space.
The exhibition will be on view from April 10 – June 30, 2022 with an indoor gallery at OSH and two outdoor public art displays in JJ Byrne Playground & Coffey Park.
