School of Pain

November 16, 2018 - January 26, 2019
Art in General, 145 Plymouth Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States

The exhibition School of Pain draws on the work of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch and Marquis de Sade, the first two thinkers of economies of desire. Sade with his ironic demonstrations may be seen as a predecessor to the attitudes of twentieth century modern and conceptual art. The libidinal economy, unleashed by modern reason, turned out to easily adopt such subversions in the constant mutations of advanced capitalism. The originally subversive imagery of Sade’s mechanised, accelerating and coldly executed desire therefore turned out…

Let’s Try Listening Again – 13th A.I.R. Biennial

January 9 - February 3
A.I.R. Gallery, 155 Plymouth Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201 United States
+ Google Map

Dear Visitor, This biennial exhibition starts where its open call ended: with the sentence “Let’s try listening again.” Echoing a contemporary sentiment, this title voices an urge to stop the treadmill of self-same thought and perceive what is near, around, yet not always seen. It highlights a pause for respect and discovery that is necessary to imagine new, relevant relations—whether social, intellectual, emotional, or cosmic. The point being: we can’t know everything, but still we need to envision novel forms…

What does it mean to be in love? For eight years, in images, writing and life, plain and simple, we have tried to tease out the answer. Love is a cliche, an idea so easy to imagine but impossible to grasp. Like an overripe fruit, it collapses with a bit of pressure into cloying sweetness and the faint sense of something lost. At its most basic, falling in love means cleaving away something of yourself and becoming something else. It’s…

To celebrate the bicentennial of Walt Whitman's birth on May 31, 2019, Brooklyn Poets invites you to submit a poem in response to the bard's indelible question from "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry": "What is it then between us?" Whitman answers with supreme confidence that whatever is between us "avails not," that neither time nor distance separates him from us or anyone else. But how do you hear that question? How has it taken on new resonance today? Brooklyn Poet Laureate Tina Chang, Mark Doty and Rowan Ricardo…
