Brooklyn Bridge Park, 334 Furman St., Brooklyn, New York 11201
Newest Americans will be the feature presentation at Photoville for opening night with films, photography and live music on September 13, 7pm at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Photoville is New York City’s premier photo festival combining exhibitions, talks, workshops, a beer garden, and night-time screenings. All exhibitions take place inside converted shipping containers. Newest Americans is a multimedia collaboratory of journalists, media-makers, artists, faculty and students of Rutgers University-Newark telling the stories that radiate from the most diverse university in the nation. Based in Newark, NJ, a city shaped by migration, our project affords a glimpse into the world of the newest Americans and a vision of our demographic future.
