Booklyn Art Gallery
37 Greenpoint Avenue, Suite E4G
Brooklyn, NY 11222
In conjunction with its current exhibition of Adam Golfer’s work, A House Without a Roof, Booklyn will host a screening of Golfer’s 20 minute video, Router, followed by a lively discussion between the artist and curator. The discourse will be a continuation of an evolving daily correspondence exchanged between them while traveling this August, and will consider ideas both central to and surrounding Adam’s present work. All are welcome to join the conversation!
Adam Golfer lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He holds a BFA in Photography from the Maryland Institute College of Art and is currently an MFA candidate in the Interdisciplinary Studio Arts program at Hunter College in New York. Adam’s photographs and videos focus on themes of war, performance and memory. He has exhibited at the Camera Club of New York, the 92nd Street Y and the Goethe Institut in Washington, DC. His photographs have appeared in TIME, The Wall Street Journal, FADER, Die Zeit and W, among others. Golfer has given artist lectures at ICP, MICA, NYU and Parsons. In 2013 he was featured as one of PDN’s 30 New and Emerging Photographers to Watch. In August 2015 Golfer will be a resident at the Kuldiga Artists’ Residence program in Latvia.
Janna Dyk is an artist and curator who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She holds an MFA in Combined Media from Hunter College (2015). Her cross-disciplinary work negotiates a variety of interests, including psychology, sociology, conversation, mysticism, perception, and truth. In 2012 she was the Collaborative Visual Arts Curator for the Chelsea Music Festival, which included curating OPEN CAGE: NEW YORK, a 75-person performance at Eyebeam Center for Art + Technology, [ON SILENCE], a group exhibition at the New York Center for Art and Media Studies, and Silence, an interdisciplinary performance at the Rubin Museum. She is a 2015 grant nominee for the Rema Hort Foundation. Presently she is curating a series of exhibitions at Booklyn with artists whose work engages broader socio-political issues in a manner that is decidedly personal.
The exhibition and this event are made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and additionally in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
