Fri., Sept. 27 to Sun., Nov. 27: Raw/Cooked – Join the Brooklyn Museum for a series of five exhibitions by emerging Brooklyn Artists and the first exhibition work by Kristof Wickman.
A major series of five ten-week-long exhibitions of works by emerging Brooklyn artists will be presented at the Brooklyn Museum from September 2011 through September 2012. The project, Raw/Cooked, supported by Bloomberg, will launch on September 16 with an exhibition of the work of Bushwick-based artist Kristof Wickman that will be on view through November 27, 2011.
Kristof Wickman, recommended by Paul Ramirez Jonas, is an object maker and a skilled builder and materials manipulator. He makes casts of everyday objects, often intertwining them with the human body in unusual, and sometimes humorous, ways. Wickman will be presenting several of these sculptures along with new works he is creating specially for Raw/Cooked. On recent visits to the Museum, he discussed the possibilities of working with objects in the Museum’s collection. His work will be presented in the Mezzanine Gallery, possibly with additional pieces in the front lobby.
The four additional exhibitions, of artists still to be selected, will be on view November 4, 2011-January 19, 2012; January 27-April 8, 2012; April 13-June 24, 2012; and June 29-September 9, 2012.
