saturdayaugust29, Lucky Gallery - Closing Reception "Honey I Shrunk Red Hook", 176 Richards Street, Brooklyn, NY. 6-10 PM

From August 8 th to August 30th, Lucky Gallery will present an
on-site installation and public art project with several
associated community events,
���Honey I Shrunk Red Hook���. This is a collaboration between Luis
Blackaller and Andy Cavatorta, whose aim to start a creative
discussion about Red Hook, the inhabitants and folklore.

The exhibition will function as a public action, interactive
installation and participatory performance. This mission of
this project is to bring together a diverse mix of members of
the Red Hook community to use art and gallery space as
communication devices.

���Red Hook has an air of mystery that I can���t find anywhere else
in New York,��� explains Blackaller. ���It feels somewhat
uncharted, perhaps separated as it is from the New York
comprehensive subway network. When thinking about making art
for Red Hook, I immediately feel like using this art as an
excuse to get closer to the people in it, and learn about the
place from them hopefully helping them learn from each other in
the process.���

Blackaller and Cavatorta will create a cardboard model of the
streets surrounding Lucky Gallery, and build a collection of
photorealistic dolls representing Red Hook dwellers. Visitors
to the Gallery will be encouraged to play with the dolls and
have the option to have their own doll made. The familiar sites
and people everybody knows will be the one���s in the
imagination, giving visitors the chance to meet (or even be!)
the familiar strangers all around them.

Exhibition Dates: August 8, 2009 ��� August 30, 2009

Closing Reception: August 29, 6-10 PM

Gallery Hours: Sat/Sun 1-6 and by appt. only

Gallery Address: Lucky Gallery, 176 Richards Street, Brooklyn,
NY. 11231
