Activist Art and a Trip to The Islands

Do not miss the phenomenal survey exhibition "JR: Chronicles" (closing October 18th), featuring the global community interventions of French street artist and activist JR on the first floor of the Brooklyn Museum. Head up to the fifth floor to see the dazzling installation, “Jeffrey Gibson: When Fire Is Applied to a Stone It Cracks,” where the original works of Gibson share a space with Native American artworks from the museum's collection. Both exhibitions provide plenty of opportunities to discuss issue of class, race, museum practices and other insightful topics
