Brooklyn’s new ArtsDistrict immersive art venue is about to open
Get ready to experience sensory overload. The new immersive and experiential arts venue ArtsDistrict Brooklyn, also known as AD/BK, will open in Greenpoint (25 Franklin Street) in July.
The massive 25,000 square foot space will redefine how guests experience analog and digital art in all its forms through visual and audio media, and it will feature a curated selection of content for visitors to enjoy.
The “Flight” and “Seance” exhibits are set to make their US debuts in the new space, offering highly intense and immersive experiences. Guests will experience an incredible blend of theatre, technology and sound, and they will do so in complete darkness inside 40ft shipping containers.
The U.S. premiere of “Limitless AI” — a signed project from the creators of “Poetic AI” — will also be part of the lineup, taking up 10,000 square feet with its immersive audio-visual experience. It will consist of a 70-minute show that builds from “Poetic AI” and adds an intriguing narrative component. Using datasets ranging from Leonardo da Vinci’s brushstroke technique to Galileo’s physics textbooks, an artificial intelligence algorithm learned the characteristics of the works it fed and created new works of art from these sources.
Those looking to quench their thirst or grab a bite to eat can do so at an on-site café, where they can also relax and browse their social networks with free WiFi. Guests who wish to spend time in the sun will be invited to sit outside on the open-air terrace with seating available.
