New York-based photographer Nicki Ishmael has curated a group photography show honoring the lost but not forgotten closed DIY spaces of Brooklyn, NY. The show, which will be held at Cloud City in Brooklyn, opens tonight with a reception at 6pm and will highlight the temporality of music spaces and the permanence of music communities and will feature interior or exterior images of now closed DIY spaces including but not limited to Death By Audio, Glasslands, 285 Kent, Dead Herring, the original Silent Barn, Market Hotel, Monster Island, Breaker Breaker, The Shank, Right Bank, and Woodser.
It will also feature a ton of past and present Impose photographers. The full list of contributing artists is below. RIP DIY runs through March 15 during normal gallery hours (Saturday and Sunday from 4-6pm) or by appointment. The gallery will host a talkback with the artists on Monday, March 9 starting at 7pm.
