Harlem Arts Festival has established a new partnership with Harlem Properties, utilizing its gallery space to showcase local artists and establish a creative hub for its roster of multi-disciplinary acclaimed artists. To officially begin its partnership, Harlem Arts Festival has announced its latest exhibition entitled “Spiritual Connections”, an exhibition that will be the first in a series of exhibitions taking place throughout the year at the gallery. This collective of work explores subcultures hidden among mainstream cultural traditions through photography and art.
Eleven photographers come together to celebrate Brooklyn from the late 1960s to present day. Walk through a childhood in Williamsburg in the 1960s, Halloween in the 1970s, and Bushwick street life in the 1980s. Turning a page, the exhibit will also address gentrifying landscapes, examining the importance of photography as documentation, and reflecting on the continuous changes in these neighborhoods.

Have you walked through the lobby of The Quin this month? In addition to the hotel’s permanent collection, distributed throughout, the lobby and drawing room are exhibiting Soren Solkaer: Heart Beat City which runs from top to bottom, enveloping the large, comfortable space in color. The Danish photographer, Solkaer, who is known for his distinctive portraits of musicians, currently has two seperate exhibits at The Quin. In addition to Soren Solkaer: Heart Beat City, the exhibit SURFACE, taken from his fine art photography book by the same name, is also on view. Below are a few photos of Quin Arts current exhibits, and several other pieces done by Artists-in-Residence, now part of a permanent collection. I do believe we caught the curator, DK Johnston, on the couch to the right.
Money…money…money….M O N E Y How does it influence you?

This is the first major retrospective of Greenfield’s work, and will feature nearly 200 photographs, interviews, and documentary film footage investigating this “elusive promise of happiness.”
