5. Connecting Humans to Each Other – Vessels by Fanny Allie in DUMBO

We have admired Fanny Allie’s sculpture work, A Bench for the Night, at MoMA PS1, and her life-size silhouette of a formerly homeless man at Tompkins Square Park, so we were naturally intrigued when we heard about her solo exhibit of collages. The exhibit, entitled Vessels, uses paper, cardboard, plastic and wood to build a story connecting humans to each other, in every shape and size, including makeshift, handmade dwellings. Everyday objects are used in various forms to create flying vessels.  The exhibit, Vessels will be on view through February 7, and will be on DUMBO’s First Thursday Art Walk on Thursday, February 4 from 6-8 pm. Located at A.I.R. Gallery, 155 Plymouth Street, Brooklyn.
