Brooklyn! at the Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art

PBICA

Lake Worth, FL –  The first large-scale museum exhibition to explore the recent explosion of artistic energy and creativity in the storied borough of Brooklyn, New York, opened on September 8, 2001 at the Palm Beach Institute of Contemporary Art in Lake Worth, Florida (running through November 25, 2001).

Roster of 86 Artists Promises Most Comprehensive Examination to Date of Present-Day Phenomenon.

BROOKLYN! provides the first systematic look at the art emerging from this new art world center, which was largely wrested by artists from the abandoned industrial buildings and neglected storefronts of a few working class neighborhoods in the borough.

This exhibition celebrates the moment that is Brooklyn now–a place of vibrant synergy among artists, galleries, and neighborhoods–before this world is transformed yet again, as all moments like this are, says Michael Rush, director of the Palm Beach ICA, and a co-organizer of the exhibition with the New York-based curator and critic Dominique Nahas.

PBICA is located at 601 Lake Avenue in Lake Worth, Fla.
