Now in its second season, Raw/Cooked is an ongoing series of exhibitions by under-the-radar Brooklyn artists. Thousands of artists are creating work in Brooklyn every day, affirming the borough as one of the world's creative capitals. To recognize emerging Brooklyn artists and provide a showcase for their work, the Brooklyn Museum, with support from Bloomberg, invites promising artists to present their first major museum exhibitions. The artists are given the opportunity to work with the Museum’s collection and to show in spaces of their choosing, however unconventional.
Raw/Cooked is organized by Eugenie Tsai, John and Barbara Vogelstein Curator of Contemporary Art, Brooklyn Museum.
