Brooklyn Photos Speak Up

Posted in Art by akacocolopez on June 29, 2008


Click! is a photography exhibition that invites Brooklyn Museum’s visitors, the online community, and the general public to participate in the exhibition process. Taking its inspiration from the critically acclaimed book The Wisdom of Crowds, in which New Yorker business and financial columnist James Surowiecki asserts that a diverse crowd is often wiser at making decisions than expert individuals, Click! explores whether Surowiecki’s premise can be applied to the visual arts—is a diverse crowd just as “wise” at evaluating art as the trained experts?

This show seems really interesting, going to check it out when I can. Browsing through the gallery, one thing is for sure. There is an overwhelming response against the upcoming changes Brooklyn (all of nyc) is experiencing through gentrification and condo’s popping up and pushing residents out.
