Reimagining Tradition is a three-week exhibition developed by Open Source Gallery, to highlight intersections between socially engaged art and ritual practice. Reimagining Tradition will take place September 30 – October 22 as a series of site-specific projects by New York City-based artists. These pieces defy the constraints of traditional gallery exhibitions and blur modern distinctions between art and the sacred. We are excited to celebrate this collection of work that inspires introspection and activates compassion within the community and the art world at large.

Thank you to our project advisor and exhibition partners:
Nina Mehta, PARCEO, Green-Wood Cemetery, Kelly Street Garden, Inner Fields, Brooklyn Public Library, Brooklyn Greenway Initiative

This project is supported by the New York State Council on the Arts and the Joseph Robert Foundation.
