Those who have read my previous articles will recall my distaste for galleries – they have a reputation for being pretty snobby and uninviting (that doesn’t stop me from going to them, but hey, I’m not perfect). 

Thankfully, there is an escape from the blue chip, hoity-toity Chelsea atmosphere: Bushwick. A hub for young, emerging artists and curators alike, the Brooklyn art scene is far more exploratory and inviting – they actually say hello when you come in! It’s crazy. It practically makes my eyes well up with tears.4061298817_6b5f568f21_z

One gallery in particular that really embodies all that is wonderful about Brooklyn art galleries is NURTUREart. Located just outside of the Morgan Ave. stop on the L train, NUTUREart, founded in 1997, can best be described by their tagline “our name is our mission.” Going above and beyond the typical gallery, which merely hosts rotating exhibitions throughout the year, the gallery also has three other programs in addition to the basic gallery functions. These include Muse Fuse, a lecture series; Education Outreach, a partnership with public schools to bring art to students; and a Registry of Artists and Curators, which gives emerging artists and curators self-managed websites and a new way to promote their work. Try getting anything like that from Gagosian.

Currently on view at NURTUREart is a show called “Multiplicity: City as subject/matter: Belfast, Hong Kong, New Delhi, New York, Tel Aviv, Tirana, and beyond,” a survey of works that explore the various nuances of urban life and what they truly mean: their politics, poetics, conveniences, ideals, and so forth. Featuring a number of international artists, “Multiplicity” investigates how cities bring people together and tear us apart, the abstract idea of a certain city versus their realities.

“Multiplicity” is presented as a series of four consecutive exhibitions, hosted by NURTUREart (56 Bogart St, Bushwick), Mixed Greens (531 W. 26th St., Chelsea), INVISIBLE-EXPORTS (89 Eldrige St., Lower Eat Side) and Union Docs (322 Union Ave., Williamsburg). These run from July 11-August 25, July 24-August 24, August 1-August 27, and a screening on August 9, respectively, giving you plenty of time and options for when and where to see it.

As residents and lovers (or haters, depending what New York decided to throw at you today) of one of the most widely discussed cities in the world, it is both fascinating and important to examine this idea of urban living and how it plays out around the world.

But enough of my rambling, go see for yourself all the wonderful things NURTUREart and the Brooklyn art scene have to offer!
