Something in the Attic is pleased to invite you to Brooklyn vs. London, a collage exhibition in which seven Brooklyn artists meet their London counterparts. Exploring themes of perception and identity, the show will unite an existing community: the Brooklyn Collage Collective with a group of carefully selected London artists who range from a daytime postman to RCA graduates.
Brooklyn Artists: Mike DeSutter, Lizzie Gill, Daniel Greer, Morgan Lappin, Kieran Madden, Jay Riggio and Sajjad
London Artists: Anthony Gerace, Adam Hale, Gareth Halliday, Flynn Cameron Jones, Anna Bu Kliewer, Claire Pestaille and Michelle Thompson
A soundtrack created by British music producer Ruf Dug will accompany the exhibition, providing a parallel to collage in the form of sampling cuts of both popular and obscure music from New York and London’s rich history of cultural cross-pollination.
Developing the notion of collage beyond visual art, a series of events will take place during the 2-week exhibition:
Collage & Music, in which music collective ReviveHER invite guest DJs to create a sound collage based on New York and London records played through a TPI audiophile sound system.
Collage & Dining, in which Michelin star chef, Omar Romero creates a 6 course meal inspired by New York and London.
