Come Together: Surviving Sandy, Year 1
October 17, 2013
Come Together: Surviving Sandy, Year 1, a large exhibition meant to celebrate the solidarity of the New York arts community after Hurricane Sandy, was a collaboration between the Dedalus Foundation, the Brooklyn Rail, the Jamestown Charitable Foundation, and Industry City Associates. On view from October 20 through December 15, 2013 at Industry City in the Sunset Park area of Brooklyn, the exhibition was curated by artist and writer Phong Bui, who is also the Publisher of the Brooklyn Rail. This vast exhibition, which provided an inspiring cross section of contemporary art in many different mediums, occupied nearly 100,000 square feet and included works by over 300 artists. It was given great critical acclaim and listed among the best art exhibitions of the year by a number of prominent publications.
A wide variety of events took place during the course of the exhibition, including musical and dance performances, films, panel discussions regarding the conservation of works of art and preventative measures with regard to future natural disasters, and readings by twenty poets commissioned by Dedalus to write about their experiences of Sandy and other natural disasters; these poems were published in the paperback volume Oh! Sandy: A Remembrance.
A richly illustrated catalogue of the exhibition was co-published by the Dedalus Foundation and Skira.
