Brooklyn’s star is rising: a behemoth of arts and culture for hundreds of years now, downtown Brooklyn especially is experiencing a cultural resurgence and a new place in the public’s imagination. In the shadow of the hip Barclays Center lies CoLab-Factory, an engaging co-working space that has built out a wide array of programming for the community. This programming is forward thinking enough to include arts and cultural offerings in the mix, and the current exhibition in the space’s gallery, entitled but what about me?, succeeds as an effervescent and electrifying foray into the works of rising art stars Jule Korneffel and Manuel Angeja. Curated by Alex Maldonado Projects, the exhibit claims the gallery’s space as a site for intervention and declaration: bright colors and enigmatic text greet delighted visitors to the space. The exhibit creates surprising modes of engaging with the space in thoughtful, creative ways.
