‘Labs at The Garage’

'Labs at The Garage'
Autumn 2016

‘Labs at The Garage’ nurtures & showcases the new generation of photography. Through a student workshop & an exhibition of powerful, diverse talent, the Red Hook Labs experience comes to The Garage, in conjunction with the Unseen Photo Fair and Festival. This is a first step for Red Hook Labs, not possible without the collaboration of The Garage and Foam, to engage with Amsterdam and share the positive creative & social benefits of their outreach & activities.

At the heart of ‘Labs at The Garage’ is a two-day workshop between Red Hook Labs instructors — Donjai Gilmore & Bashira Webb — and a group of Amsterdam youth selected by collaborator Foam. Donjai & Bashira, both former students of ICP at the Point in South Bronx, NY, and now accomplished artists, teamed up with a Dutch instructor to help these students learn to tell meaningful visual stories of their choosing through still & moving image.

The accompanying exhibition presents a dynamic collection of work from the most talented emerging artists alongside some of the most acclaimed — a true expression of the Red Hook Labs mission. Artists include Donjai Gilmore, Jamie Hawkesworth, Stef Mitchell, Kristin-Lee Moolman, Bashira Webb, a selection of work by students of Red Hook Labs from New York as well as the debut of film & posters made by students of the Amsterdam workshop.
