Photoville is Back, but in a New Format, and Many New Locations

Photoville, the exhibit of contemporary photography that, in recent years has been held in shipping containers in an empty lot beneath the Brooklyn Bridge, has, because of COVID-19, been taken outdoors. It’s now on billboard like structures, as in the photo, taken near the Old Fulton Street entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park. These displays are scattered throughout the Park. A list of the exhibitions in Brooklyn, most of which are in the Park or DUMBO, is here. This year, there are Photoville exhibits in all five Boroughs. Photoville will be up through November 29.

    Saying this as an artist and art educator:

    I’ve been seeing Photoville’s banner-type installations throughout Brooklyn Bridge Park and parts of Dumbo now for the past six or seven years (how long has it been?).

    The consistency of quality, the power of the communication, within the artwork and the way it’s presented, is something I have never encountered anywhere else, not in any galleries, not in any museums. I urge each of you to make time to stop and pay attention next time you walk by one of their installations.

    Agreed; these installations are a huge gift to all of us. I’m also amazed at the quality of the reproductions. It can’t be easy to print photographs of such sharpness and depth on waterproof material.

    Agreed. I found the cargo boxes over-crowded and not a good way to look at art. “The Fence” (for me at least) has been consistently the star of Photoville.
