Event Description


SLIDELUCK RED HOOK

Following the overwhelming success of the first SLIDELUCK of this year's Brooklyn Series in Bushwick, we invite you to join us for an evening in a fascinating little corner of New York City:  Red Hook.


In 1636, the Dutch called this point of land "Red Hook," because of its red, sandy clay.  It then became a bustling maritime port, which fell by the wayside - and in the 90's was considered the "Crack Capital of America."  Today, it is home to a lively and diverse community of artists – a number of whom will be featured in this slideshow.

 

Come join us at the amazing and spacious Kidd Yellin Gallery, for some great food (possibly a pig roast), live music friends and fantastic artwork.  Delicious beverages with be provided by Brooklyn Brewery, Perrier and Brooklyn Republic Vodka.  Once again, we will work with Sustainable Party to make this another zero waste event!

Kidd Yellin Gallery (http://kiddyellin.com) in Red Hook, Brooklyn was founded in 2009 by photographer Charlotte Kidd and sculptor Dustin Yellin. The gallery opened with a solo show of Gavin Anderson paintings and sculptures and a project room with drawings of Butthole Surfer's front man Gibby Haynes.  As an artist-run exhibition space, Kidd Yellin is in the unique position of understanding the artist's needs and thereby supporting innovative work.  They started a Brooklyn-based artist group show, Kings County Biennial, along with James Fuentes. Kidd Yellin has also developed a residency program for young artists in the open-studio model along with Recess Activities.

 

Thanks for your time and we hope to catch you there!  Feel free to spread the word to artists living or working in the area!  And lest we forget:  please consider supporting those that support us!
