Ever dreamed of curating the next big museum show? The Brooklyn Museum’s GO Project wants your input. During an open studio weekend this Fall, Brooklyn residents are invited to visit artist studios and vote for their favorites, who will then be featured in an exhibition at the museum. This community-curated project aims to build neighborhood ties and open up a dialogue between artists, residents, and public institutions.
So far, nearly one thousand artists have registered their studios and there’s still one week to go. Residents can register to vote starting in August and up through the end of the open studio weekend in September. Artist profiles will be online soon so you can preview them and map out your plan of attack. In order to vote, you’ll have to visit at least five artist’s studios, so get out there and meet your friendly neighborhood artists!
