Current / Bodies: Art and Action on the Waterfront at the Brooklyn Historical Society

Brooklyn Historical Society and Underwater New York present six New York artists and writers whose works address the history and future of our waterways. Join photographer Chester Higgins, visual artists Barry Rosenthal, Nancy Nowacek, and Francis Estrada, and poets Cynthia Manick and Wo Chan as they consider New York’s waterfront as a site of continuity and a threshold for political, social, and environmental change.

Offered in connection with the new exhibition “Waterfront” at BHS DUMBO.
