Brooklyn Utopias: In TRANSITion

Brooklyn Utopias: In TRANSITion
by Simonetta Moro, IDSVA director

I am pleased to be part of the exhibition “Brooklyn Utopias”, which opened at the Old Stone House in Brooklyn, NY, on September 17. The exhibition will be on view until January 12, 2014.

Brooklyn Utopias: In TRANSITion brings together 19 artists and arts groups responding to differing visions of ideal urban transportation systems, or proposing their own. Some artists take inspiration from Brooklyn’s existing transportation landscape, while others ask the questions, through exaggeratedly Utopian and Dystopian transportation proposals, “Who gets to make decisions about the future of transit?” and, “What role can artists play?”
