PhotovillePier 5 Uplands (Brooklyn Bridge Park, Brooklyn, NY) Map it Free
Photography lovers: it's time again to pack your bags and head to Brooklyn Bridge Park for a visit to Photoville. After a successful launch in 2012, Brooklyn-based cooperative United Photo Industries returns with an enhanced version of his county-fairish pop-up. Playing host to free exhibitions, night-time screenings, artist lectures, and hands-on workshops, Photoville is the perfect staycation for those that suffer from the shutter bug. At the heart of this year's village are 45 shipping containers that have been repurposed to house over 40 exhibitions, including "501 Photographs" by Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), "Reporting Our World" by Anne Curry, and Nina Berman's "Fractured." Also on site, a 1000-foot long outdoor photographic installation, and a beer garden complete with food trucks. The exhibitions and programming are free, but may require advance registration.
