Three calls for submissions for work that extends beyond documentation for For and About: Art and Reactions to Superstorm Sandy, a curatorial project focused on how artists experience and interpret natural disasters. The show is open to visual and literary artists based in Brooklyn, who wish to present work dedicated to people affected by Hurricane Sandy, and/or about the storm’s impact on Brooklyn. For and About is an opportunity to focus on the communities hit hardest by the storm, creating a space to reflect on the collective and individual experiences at the one-year anniversary of the storm.
BAC Gallery Group Exhibition
Artworks created in unsettled or resettled studios and art created in support or in response to the communities affected by the storm will be considered. Artworks of all dimensions will be considered but work must be able to be hung on a wall. Any chosen works on paper must be delivered to BAC Gallery framed and ready to hang. Framing is the responsibility of the artists although the curators and gallery director are available for consultation.
Dumbo, the waterfront neighborhood where BAC is headquartered, was one of the Brooklyn neighborhoods hardest hit by Sandy. To commemorate this, artists may propose an installation at Dewey’s Candy in Dumbo or suggest a site in Brooklyn that will support their vision.
Written Word Limited Edition Zine and Online Collection
BAC Gallery seeks stories, songs and poems about Superstorm Sandy to be published in an online collection, as well as limited edition zine. Character count limit: max 6,000

Artist Statement- The prints in this collection are the result of my lifetime love, and complete inability to play, jazz. Last year, in a moment of the inevitable frustration that comes with being an illustrator and graphic designer, I cast around to find a subject I could dig into that felt truly personal. I somehow hit upon the idea of Thelonious Monk. I wanted to capture both his likeness and come up with a visual equivalent for his chunky, angular music. It was so satisfying that I sought out other subjects – Mingus’s melodic abstractions, Duke Ellington’s modernist classicism, Charlie Parker’s whiplash virtuosity, Dizzy Gillespie’s whipsaw athleticism – and about a half dozen other favorites.

Art and Reactions on the Anniversary of Superstorm Sandy

For and About is a show focused on how artists have experienced and interpreted natural disasters, and seeks work that extends beyond documentation.

It is an opportunity to focus on the communities hit hardest by the storm, creating a space to reflect on the collective and individual experiences at the one-year anniversary.
A group exhibition of visual artworks will be on display at BAC Gallery and a site-specific installation integrated into the DUMBO community during the Dumbo Arts Festival. This multi-faceted exhibition will also be gathering written pieces to present in a limited-edition zine and to publish online at brooklynartscouncil.org.
