Brooklyn Armory Night
Saturday March 10th, 7-10
Williamsburg & Greenpoint, Brooklyn
This year, during the Brooklyn Armory Night, Saturday, March 10th, Williamsburg and Greenpoint will be hosting an exciting series of artist exhibitions, special video screening and performances at a variety of venues throughout the area. Williamsburg and Greenpoint will be featuring presentations of international and national artists, both home-grown and imported in an explosion of exhibitions, events, screenings and other projects. Everywhere you turn, you’ll find galleries with exhibition openings and special events, restaurants and bars screening artists’ videos, and mobile artist projects. Galleries will be open until 10pm, with special events at participating venues throughout the evening, followed by the Brooklyn Armory Night Afterparty at the art house theatre, Indiscreen.
New work by Nicola Ginzel and Chester Nielsen, an intriguing pairing of minds and talents. Their art is distinctly unique; their paths surprisingly similar.

FRONT ROOM GALLERY
“Useful Things(For Getting Lost),” Melissa Pokorny’s sculptural work examines connections between “things” as potent containers of memory, capably representing loss and estrangement, and the deeply metaphorical, haunted landscape of the everyday. Drawing on traditions of assemblage, these sculptural tableau and wall mounted forms address the status of marginal objects and things. Celebrating this year’s Brooklyn Armory night, Front Room will be presenting an evening of outdoor video projections featuring works by Chris Jordan and Jeremy Slater.
