A group exhibition of artists selected from the chashama Workspace Program, where emerging and mid-career artists create art in a nurturing and affordable environment.
“Ars Nova”, is borrowed from a term which generally applies to a musical style from the Late Middle Ages. It translates from Latin to “new art”. Flourishing in the 14th century, Ars Nova was free in character, marked by variety in rhythms and melodies.
For us, the unifying factor of the artwork in this exhibition parallels the Ars Nova movement in the sense that there is a freshness, and a “newness” beyond the formalities and traditions of image making. All of the artists were selected from the chashama studio program, where emerging and mid-career artists create their art in a nurturing and affordable environment. Located in the BAT (Brooklyn Army Terminal) buildings, chashama, in partnership with Tabla Rasa Gallery, represents the new frontier of arts and culture in Sunset Park.
