All-In: Swimming the Gowanus Tonight

All In: Swimming the Gowanus brings together a diverse group of artists, water advocates, and explorers who engage our imagination, perceptions, and understanding of water with a focus on the Gowanus Canal.

This exhibit invites visitors to figuratively leave the banks of the canal and go “all in,” immersing themselves in water as interpreted by artists and engaging in ideas of those actively working on the future of the Gowanus. This show generates new thinking about water and a vision for a swimmable canal.

Artists exhibited: Denise Amses, Ai Campbell, Chris Cosma, Eymund Deigel, Miska Draskoczy, Karen Gibbons, Sarah Gorham, Hans Frode, Steven Hirsch, Mikael Levin, Robin Michal, Alex Nero, Peter Reich, Effie Serlis, Tony Stanzione, Christopher Swain, David Weiner.

Proceeds from the sale of artwork will be shared with Arts Gowanus, Gowanus Canal Conservancy, and Swim with Swain.
