COPE NYC ART EXPO Acumen Capital Partners LLC building, formerly Pfizer, located at 630 Flushing Avenue, the crossroads of Brooklyn, has turned its recently renovated first floor retail space #1 into an art gallery for a multi-tiered COPE NYC ART EXPO organized and curated by Vida Sabbaghi running from November 18 until December 16, 2017. Sabbaghi extends her curatorial work at cultural arts institutions to Acumen’s industrial space because she recognizes the importance of its vitality and vision. Acumen, a hub for talent, and host to over 150 businesses which include artists, media, music, tech, fashion, film, food, and education, will host An Inclusive World’s Repsychling exhibition of acclaimed artists known for their use of humble materials. Will Kurtz, Federico Uribe, Alice Hope, Jacques Jarrige, and Sui Park use one single medium and repetition to achieve their work. Will Kurtz makes life size sculptures of everyday people and animals with newspaper. Federico Uribe uses objects like colored pencils to construct his art on canvas. Sui Park makes lace-like sculptures with cable ties. Jacques Jarrige’s hand hammered aluminum space drawing is presented with a short film by video artist, Garret Linn. The COPE NYC ART EXPO Artists in Residence from Pratt Institute and Adelphi have been working during the month of October. Their work will be on display on the third floor. In the spirit of CREATIVE REUSE they turn reusable materials into artworks and site specific interactive installations. Pratt Institute’s installation, Fish Bones, tells a story inspired by the Taino myth of how the sea began. This installation of shadow play, spoken word, and music will engage participants in the construction and creation of a sea of fish using a variety of collected materials culminating in a series of interactive performances and workshops. It was developed by MFA student coordinator Aubrey Roemer (‘19), alumni coordinators, Susan Luss (‘13) and Miguel Hernandez (‘98), MFA students Rachel Cohen (’18), Rhea In (’17), and Yen Yen Chou (’18); Pratt faculty advisor Jean Shin worked with them.
