10. Chashama, Just Being Polite in Brooklyn Bridge Park

In the presentation, Just Being Polite | chaNorth Alumni. The non-profit artist organization, Chashama, puts forth a “defensive exchange made between people when one’s politeness is rejected.” “The artists in this exhibition are done ‘trying to be polite,'” according to an exhibit press release, “communicating instead with honest, complex emotions about difficult states and situations with agency, energy and without apology.”
Just Being Polite | chaNorth Alumni features the work of seven of Chashama’s Fall 2017 chaNorth residency alumni, and is curated by Brigitta Varadi and Peter Fulop. The exhibition will not be on view for very long: February 3 to February 13, located at One Brooklyn Bridge Park, waterfront side of 360 Furman Street, between Piers 5 & 6. The opening reception will be held on February 3 from 5:30 to 8:30pm.
