Beating Armory week to the punch, this after-hours Bushwick art crawl returns with its 10th edition. Produced by Jason Andrew and nonprofit arts organization Norte Maar, Beat Nite debuted in 2009 when there were only seven galleries in the hood. The scene has since expanded to over 50, and so as to keep things manageable, Beat Nite turned into a curated event in 2012. For this installment, Austin Thomas, artist and owner of Pocket Utopia, has selected 10 art spaces to participate. Showcasing both the established and the DIY, among the stops are English Kills, Orgy Park, Parallel Art Space and Airplane. The evening's festivities culminate in a massive after-party at the Narrows. Visit the Beat Nite website for more details and a downloadable map.

BUSHWICK, NY–Jason Andrew and Norte Maar bring back the late night in Bushwick with the tenth issue of Beat Nite featuring just 10 art spaces selected by guest curator Bushwick original, Austin Thomas owner of Pocket Utopia. Beat Nite will be held Friday, February 28 with selected spaces will be open 6-10pm followed by a huge after party at The Narrows (the original home of Austin Thomas’s project space Pocket Utopia). Hyperallergic is the official media sponsor of Beat Nite 10. Beat Nite is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Austin Thomas, artist and gallerist (gallerartist) has selected a tour night of Bushwick / Ridgewood art spaces that ensures viewers a chance to experience the “buzz of creativity and the aura of being at the vanguard of contemporary production.”

My intention is not to define a night of neighborhood art openings but rather to collaborate on a happening of novel experiences in the broadest sense to include painting, sculpture, drawing and a wide range of visual and creative practices. -AT

From apartment gallery to alternative space, artist run spaces to established galleries, this installment of Beat Nite has it all! First time participants Orgy Park, Parallel Art Space, and Studio 10 will mix it up with venerable Beat Nite participants like English Kills.

Beat Nite made its neighborhood debut in February 2009, featuring all of Bushwick’s alternative art spaces and galleries—at the time, only seven. The event grew into a biannual occurrence offering an awesome neighborhood-wide event that many have labeled “half art stroll, half bar crawl.” With over 50 galleries and alternative spaces now in Bushwick/Ridgewood, since 2012 a special guest curator has been invited to select just 10 spaces from the community’s many great offerings.
