Live at the Archway is free performances + pop up gallery + interactive live art in a magical, only-in-DUMBO setting. Always free + all ages + rain or shine.

Each week, alongside a free musical performance, a different DUMBO-based artist is featured in The Artist Interactive–a twofold art experience that jointly exhibits artist’s work in a small pop-up gallery, “The Space Station,” and also offers an opportunity for audience members to directly engage with the artist and create a new collaborative piece together each week.

> Artist Interactive at the Space Station: Pop up gallery + live art experience with James Nazarov — All night!


The Artist:
James Nazarov is an artist obsessed with dots and the way the human eye perceives reality. Nazarov was born, raised, and currently operates in Brooklyn, New York. After receiving a J.D. from Saint John’s University he opened his first studio and has been creating art ever since. For James, a piece of art is a conversation, a map to self discovery. Different forms of abstraction allow the viewer to connect with art by using their own power of perception. Each piece that James creates is a multi-layered dialogue. What the viewer starts with seeing, is not always what they end up uncovering. The world is broken down around us into Pixels, and perception of life comes from putting the dots back together.

The Gallery:
The Artist Interactive is presented in collaboration with This Friday or Next Friday. Tfnf is likely the tiniest, most inconsequential art gallery in DUMBO, Brooklyn, probably in NYC, and maybe on the face of the earth. It was founded by Nathan Sinai Rayman, and he runs it with Zach Seeger, his Director of Programs.
