MAKING SPACE Closing Reception




Reception: March 28, 2010 5-8PM

SUPERFRONT invites you to celebrate the success of the 1st annual Architects-in-Residence exhibit and publication of the MAKING SPACE catalog. Please join us at the gallery (1432 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, NY) on Sunday, March 28th from 5-8pm.

MAKING SPACE presents the work of FRANCISCA BENITEZ and PAWEL NIEDZWIECKI. 
The exhibit is open during gallery hours: Saturdays and Sundays from 1-6PM.

An artist talk on collaborative work, featuring FRANCISCA BENITEZ and her featured collaborators from New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) community centers in Brooklyn, will take place during the closing. MAKING SPACE catalogs will also be for sale, hot off the press.

In MAKING SPACE, SUPERFRONT’s two Architects-in-Residence explore the notion of residency in New York. Both artists/architects have responded to SUPERFRONT’s spatial identity as rooted in its location in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn.

PAWEL NIEDZWIECKI, trained as an architect, has literally resided in SUPERFRONT’s artist studio space during the past 5 months, producing work that explores personal affections through architectural methods. Niedzwiecki’s ink drawings often reference musical composition as an 
architectural language.

FRANCISCA BENITEZ explores what it means to inhabit New York’s system of public spaces, from community centers to Brooklyn sidewalks. Alongside her own highly political and conceptual series of graphite rubbings of built surfaces, Benitez exhibits pieces made by or in conjunction with 
residents of public housing.

This exhibit and the Architects-in-Residence program are partly enabled by generous donations from Nilizandr Gilbert and Sarah Millsaps.
