It’s been a great 18 months of sharing great work through the exhibition project NOW. HERE. THIS. The first six installments were geared toward promoting cross-cultural dialog, highlighting the variety of media represented in contemporary art and the different responses to the idea of location or place. The following six installments from January to June 2012 featured a single artist in order to delve deeper into the power of the artist’s process. With the last six installments, from July through December 2012, we have been exhibiting work made by teams, duos and collaborators. By showcasing a variety of disciplines and approaches, we’ve seen the power of having multiple points of view working towards a common goal.
And now it’s time for our final installment. We are featuring OFF CENTER, a project by the collaborative partners of HUSK, Christina Kelly and Jeff Hutchinson. Over the next month, check in to see their progress as they delve into an exploration of the controversial site of the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn. At the conclusion of the month they will have a series of exchanges and ideas that have gone through various processes of accumulation, transformation and perspective shifts with open-ended possibilities.
The November 2012 exhibition for Now.Here.this features PeepingTrain, a new project by dynamic art-duo Pietre Valbuena and Laura Torres!

Candy Chang, a fabulous artist who participated in Windows Brooklyn, is a TED Senior Fellow.
In her New Orleans neighborhood, artist and TED Fellow Candy Chang turned an abandoned house into a giant chalkboard asking a fill-in-the-blank question: “Before I die I want to ___.” Her neighbors’ answers — surprising, poignant, funny — became an unexpected mirror for the community. (What’s your answer?)”
We apologize for being so behind in updating the news page of our website. But now we have some big news to announce: We are launching the last six installments of Now. Here. This., our 18-month web-based exhibition. With the last six installments, from July through December 2012, we are taking a look at collaborations (2 or more artists working together) and the power of having multiple points of view working together for a common goal. As in the previous series, each exhibition will change over time and provide an in-depth look into the visceral responses, performative gestures and inspired moments of artists affected by their surroundings. Please click here to learn more!
At the end of the series, the exhibition will have existed in three distinct parts, and we are planning to publish a corresponding catalog at the end of the year.

At The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts Project Space through March 10, 2012, visitors can view art made by Belorusian artists as curated by Olga Kopenkina in Sound of Silence: Art During Dictatorship. “Sound of Silence presents videos, posters, installations and paintings by nine of the most active artists and collectives from Belarus. These artists create work in solidarity with recent popular protest in Belarus, using their practice to challenge the status quo and contribute to the democratic movement, which expands far beyond their native land.” The result is powerful and educational.
