Crystal uses a lovely blend of whimsical and sturdy material that delights the eye.

A Blackness Continuum May 10 2016

A Blackness Continuum by L. Kasimu Harris

Harris is exploring with the space time continuum,  space-time does not evolve, it simply exists, to examine police brutality against black men. Harris contends, through his video, that the time, nor, place or person matters, when it comes to the killing of black men. He uses trees as a portal to transport to these recurring events. Moreover, Harris starts this journey in 1955, the decade when recorded lynching began to taper off and the trees represent that history. But, now, the new lynchings are police killings and the advent of mobile recording devices has made the masses into an audience.   

Space-time does not evolve, it simply exists. When we examine a particular object from the standpoint of its space-time representation, every particle is located along its world-line. This is a spaghetti-like line that stretches from the past to the future showing the spatial location of the particle at every instant in time. This world-line exists as a complete object which may be sliced here and there so that you can see where the particle is located in space at a particular instant.

Tye Tomon - a fashion presentation

Warehouse Gallery & Studio | 183 Lorraine Street | Brooklyn, NY 11231

Reception Friday September 12th 6-9pm | available by appointment from September 7th - 11th

The Tye collection is a collaborative bow tie series by designer Lesley Ware with creative direction from curator kamau ware. Lesley and kamau have two nephews named Tye and found it a fitting title for the collection. The concept is that each bow tie have its own personality and story, very much like their adorable nephews. The first tie from this collection is “the Portie” which is inspired by the school uniforms worn by the children in the city of Port Antonio, Jamaica, which was pleasantly discovered by the Wares on their summer vacation.

OMWA + Idia’Dega is Indigenous-inspired elegant ethical apparel. OMWA: Olorgesailie Maasai Women Artisans of Kenya and Tereneh Mosley designer of Idia’Dega a US-based eco-fashion line. Ms. Mosley lived in a Maasai community to co-design the Tomon Collection with OMWA. Tomon means 10 in Maa, the Maasai language, the collection is a ten-piece eco-collection for women and men featuring apparel, accessories and jewelry. The collection premiered in Paris this past July.

The Tye Tomon presentation is supported by our fabulous sponsors, the shimmer app and Six Point Brewery. More on NY Fashion Week.

FEARLESS by Adrian Franks August 06 2014


Opening Reception

Wednesday August 6th | 6-9pm

Location: Bed Stuy, Brooklyn

Civil Service Cafe (our pop-in gallery)

279 Nostrand Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11216

For the past three years, artist Adrian Franks has questioned and celebrated fearlessness through a set of digital silhouettes comprised of both iconic and everyday figures. Striking profiles from the likes of Fela, Shirley Chisolm, to John F. Kennedy and intimates such as Adrian's wife and colleagues have found their image and voice in the collection. The questions Adrian has posed with this visual narration is "Where would we be if these icons gave in to fear?" and "What makes you fearless now?".

This dialogue has found a home online and in several exhibitions in New York City and one traveling group show. Warehouse Gallery has reached into the origins of this creative exercise by selecting some of the original "Fearless" digital concepts which were based on police mug shots of the Freedom Riders of 1961 who were civil activists risking bodily harm to integrate public and private spaces in the south. With this exhibition, Warehouse Gallery asks the everyday figures of Civil Service Cafe, "What fearless actions are you taking today?"
