During a studio visit Max told Risa about an idea for a show of artists’ proposals for fantastic, nearly impossible exhibitions. Risa was quite taken by the idea, and some months later, when the opportunity to curate this exhibition arose, she thought it might be the right time to manifest Max’s idea. But then! she ran into a friend, a film critic, who is currently obsessed with some short films made by Godard in lieu of written proposals to potential funders. He was having trouble getting films financed in the late 70s and 80s, and instead of filling out applications for funding, he made these shorts that were meant to encapsulate the theory and content of the longer films he wanted to make. These shorts now stand as works in-and–of themselves. BIG FUTURE will showcase finished works that have never been shown before and represent the idea of an as-yet unrealized piece or collection of pieces.
“Represent Brooklyn” is an annual fine arts exhibition designed to bring together artists, art collectors, art organizations, and community members that live and work in Brooklyn. The paintings, sculptures, photographs, prints, and mixed media artwork included in the show provide a glimpse of the diverse range of creative style and visual presentation found in Brooklyn.
Red is the warmest of all colors. Red is associated with fiery heat and warmth. It can also mean danger. Red is the color of blood, and as such has strong symbolism as life and vitality. It brings focus to the essence of life and living with emphasis on survival. Red is also the color of passion and lust.
