3rd Wave: The Planet of Brooklyn Transitions, an exhibition of works by 25 Brooklyn-based artists, presents a visual analysis of the effect immigration, migration and gentrification has had on New York's most populous borough.
A '3rd Wave' of new Brooklyn residents, which follows two previous large-scale influxes of immigration into Brooklyn, has resulted in a unique mix of traditions, cultures and perspectives on life that characterize the borough today. 3rd Wave: The Planet of Brooklyn Transitions captures this shift in Brooklyn's ever-changing history through the eyes of 25 artists, working across two dimensional forms. Brooklyn-based artists, Scott Andresen, Laylah Amatullah Barrayn, Betty Alexandra Bastidas, Steven Bornholtz, Martin Brecht, Delphine Fawandu Buford, Samantha Casolari, Linn Edwards, Cacy Forgenie, Lucy Fradkin, G Grippo, Akintola Hanif, Jayson Keeling, Nsenga Knight, Youme Landowne, Erica McDonald, Ocean Morisset, Lori Nelson, One9, David Pham, Joan B Reutershan, Misty Rice, Tom Russotti, Hidemi Sato and Rachel Wells contribute works that create a mosaic of images and themes, each representing a dimension that makes up the culture of present day Brooklyn.
