Our project-in-residence Reanimation Library presents the second exhibition of our yearlong investigation of Water. The exhibition, Reanimation Library/Gowanus Branch, presents new work by Jen Bervin, David East, and Marget Long. The exhibition will also include a selection of water-related books from the library’s collection. The exhibition works in sculpture, photography, video, installation and textile all grew out of an initial encounter with printed material, often from the library’s own collection. The exhibition runs from January 4 through March 16, 2014. [continue reading…]

A Way of Thinking: A Workshop on the “Proteus Process”
Sign up now for this Proteus Gowanus workshop located in the MoMA Education Department. Participation is limited to 20. Proteus subscribers pay less! $50 for the three-hour workshop instead of $90. Just use the secret code “Proteus” in the “discount code” box.
In a romp through the Museum of Modern Art, Proteus Gowanus core collaborators Sasha Chavchavadze and Tammy Pittman have designed a game to demonstrate our Protean process so you too can experience the “way of thinking” that results in our interdisciplinary exhibitions.
The workshop demonstrates a knowledge-seeking process in which participants enter into selected topics via a thematically interconnected array of art, artifacts, and books. Gather and create (individually or as a group) a collection of objects that speaks to newways of seeing your subject. You will develop and expand on that theme as you explore MoMA exhibitions. This thematic, process-oriented workshop, developed especially for MoMA, includes working in exhibition galleries, with a focus on curating and creating.
We hope to see you there! Your participation supports our ongoing programs at Proteus Gowanus.
