FEEL is a photography show featuring work on instant film by twelve artists from NYC and around the world. It is being curated by Brooklyn Film Camera and will be hosted at the B[x] Gallery in Bushwick from April 13 - May 25.
The theme of this show is "Feel". Simple, yet a word that holds much depth. To feel is something that is explored and interpreted in endless ways by all of us every day. How one feels about themselves, about those around them, about their community, their world, their reality; these sensitivities are constantly in flux. As we navigate an increasingly divided society, a polarized political landscape, the dehumanizing affects of late-stage Capitalism, and an increasing addiction to screens, we must fight the inevitable, soothing urge for numbness. To feel numb is to lose feeling and we must always remember how to feel. How to wholeheartedly and earnestly feel. It is our humanity. It is our heartbeat. For this show, we seek work that expresses this theme. Imagery that explores closeness, humanity, community, and love. These times beg for warmth. Let's feel it.
