The Brooklyn Art Project, a social network for established and emerging artists worldwide, is organizing the Battle for Brooklyn, a competition that gives artists from around the world a chance to compete for three slots in a Brooklyn based group show on September 28, 29 and 30. The show is part of the 2007 Art Under the Bridge Festival and is the single largest urban forum for experimental art in the United States attended by roughly 150,000 art enthusiasts each year.
Says Brooklyn Art Project Co-Founder Anthony Cospito, “We want to give artists from around the world a chance to be a part of something special and show their work here. This is one example of how social networks can drive real value for people. We’re seeing quite a bit of exciting work from all around the world, with an impressive amount from Asia, Singapore in particular.“
