Something to Say: Brooklyn Hi-Art! Machine
January 19 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
The Brooklyn Museum highlights the work of four Brooklyn artists with Something to Say, a yearlong activation of the Museum’s public spaces emphasizing the institution’s important role as a place for civic discourse. Bringing together existing works and new, site-specific commissions by Brooklyn Hi-Art! Machine, Deborah Kass, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and Hank Willis Thomas, Something to Sayexplores the intersection between language and art through a series of text-based installations that activate the Museum’s plaza green, steps, and promenade outside and the lobby within. Through the use of language in their work, the artists engage us in topics ranging from national debates to local community issues, sparking dialogue around some of the most pressing questions of our time and inspiring us to listen, share with one another, and connect through art.
Thursdays 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.
