Kunsthalle Galapagos opens The Invitational on Thursday March 6th with dual opening parties: 6-9pm at 111 Front St., #212 / 9pm-late at 16 Main St. The Invitational is a multidisciplinary group exhibition that presents over 50 artists and spans two galleries in DUMBO, Brooklyn. In the spirit of the Kunsthalle’s large inaugural group show, and curated collaboratively by its 5 members Julie McKim, Erik Hougen, Gracie Kazer, Wyatt Nash and Daniel Kingery, The Invitational is an investigation into the art production we have encountered over the past year, a focus on our artist-centric mission, and a preview of things to come. The Invitational brings together an array of disciplines and mediums, presents work created specifically for the show, including performances and site-specific installations, and showcases artists both new to the Kunsthalle and those who have previously exhibited at the space.
A live competitive storytelling event to benefit the Photo ID Foundation Children and young adults battling life-threatening illnesses. The Photo ID Foundation puts cameras and other tools in their hands, allowing them to “speak” about their experiences in words and images. On a Thursday evening in March, you’ll have the chance to help. A unique variety of storytellers -- from sportswriters to neurologists -- will each tell a story relating to the theme of “Baseball As Good Medicine.” They have five minutes tops to tell their story. A panel of judges will then lend their thoughts. All in good fun. You get to sit in the Clubhouse bleachers, enjoy a beer/beverage/ballpark snack and watch it take place in front of you. Seats are limited, starting with a contribution of $25. All proceeds go to the Photo ID Foundation.
