The flux of immigration across the globe shapes the present moment politically, culturally, even aesthetically. Non-Native New York features the cultural contributions of artists who have immigrated to the United States and made Brooklyn their current home. This exhibition celebrates the artwork that results when an artist is uprooted by moving to a new country, leaving behind a social support system, cultural commonality, and first language.
Non-Native New York exhibits fifteen Brooklyn artists from many regions of the globe. Their art and studio practices are as diverse as their native lands. Yet there is a common impulse to explore the social and urban environment, collective experiences and individual memory.
Non-Native New York features: Mahtab Aslani, Jaclyn Conley, Francisco Correa-Cordero, Emile H Dubuisson, Yuhi Hasegawa, Hai-Hsin Huang, Jee Hwang, Gautam Kansara, Maria Kondratiev, Olek, Lothar Osterburg, Jung Eun Park, Sarah Nicole Phillips, Minori Sanchiz-Fung, and Taganyahu Swao.
This exhibition is made possible by the Brooklyn Arts Council 2010 Community Arts Regrant Program, as well as generous donations from: de Castellane Gallery, Telegraphix Digital Printing, Inc, and is fiscally sponsored by SONYA (South of the Navy Yard Artists).
Non-Native New York is curated by Linn Edwards and Brian Bell
