The media are not toys… they can be entrusted only to new artists, because they are art forms.
(McLuhan, 1954)


ACME BROOKLYN

ACME Brooklyn is an art project that aims to display the artistic production of a specific context. On this occasion, a group of artists from the emerging and stablished art scenes of Mexico and New York are invited to produce and generate a piece for different exhibition spaces: a warehouse, an old textile factory (now turned hotel), and a movie theater.

Within this communal ground, the dialogue and cultural exchange between the participating artists becomes the subject of the project.

ACME Brooklyn is a project created by BASE proyectos, Archipiélago, Mezcal UNIÓN and La Fabrica Gallery.
