Please join me as I host the next Bogart Salon on April 12 on "Capital and its Discontents: Art, Money, Real Estate, and the Changing Face of Bushwick." My illustrious panelists are Ann Fensterstock (collector, arts patron, historian), Francis Greenburger (collector, founder of Time Equities), Loren Munk (artist), William Powhida (artist), and Natalia Sacasa (Senior Director, Luhring Augustine).
We are now taking RSVPs for this free event. Add your name to the list here.
Our conversation will be Bushwick specific while also attempting to take on some larger themes, in particular the relationship of money and real estate to the culture of art.
There’s little question that new capital--in the form of new collectors, new galleries, higher rents, etc--is now flowing into the once isolated artistic neighborhood of Bushwick. How could these changes play out, and how should Bushwick’s various stakeholders prepare for the change?
I'll have a wide range of voices on the panel to discuss these developments. In addition to the present, I am interested in hearing from those who can speak to what has happened historically as New York’s other arts neighborhoods (Soho, Chelsea, Lower East Side, Williamsburg) have gentrified.
Do you have a question you'd like to ask the panel? I want to hear from you. Simply direct your comments to @jamespanero & #bogartsalon on twitter.
With special thanks to Peter Hopkins of Bogart Salon and Ted Hovivian of 56 Bogart.
