Prospect Park Alliance is partnering with the Park Slope Civic Council to bring a new multi-arts festival to Park Slope. Taking place over nine days, from September 17 through September 25, Art Slope will unite artists from all over Brooklyn as they display their work, which speaks to issues such as sustainability, politics and social happenings.
In cooperation with the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, ten installations will be in Prospect Park. With works ranging from sculpture to painting, film to performance art, live music and sound installations, all kinds of art will be available to interact with and learn from throughout Park Slope.

Electromotility (Lat. 40.67, Long. -73.97) is a small scale, temporary, site-specific sound installation that is both site responsive & viewer participatory. Taking place inside Meadowport Arch in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, NY on Sept. 17, 18, 24, 25 from 10AM to 4PM, this collaborative project explores the intersections of community, nature & technology.

Open Shelter is part of an installation series that references human-made structures, and explores their role as external expressions of relationship with a particular place. I combine materials traditionally reserved for fine art with structural building materials in order to inhabit a space between art and architecture. The use of reclaimed and weathered materials provides visible evidence of the environment that humbles our human-made constructions.

Trojan Purse is a twelve foot tall wooden purse on wheels which can be rolled to various locations around the park over the course of the event. The purse will stand alone as an impressively-scaled sculpture and it will be moved around as conspicuous political theater performance. Trojan Purse has existed in three previous iterations. The first, in 2004, was built for an exhibition at Voorkamer Gallery in Lier, Belgium. The second, in 2005, was paraded through the streets of the East Village as a part of the Howl Festival for an exhibition organized by Art in Odd Places. The third, in 2007, was constructed for the exhibition Manipulations at Texas Tech University.
