Photoville, A Photographic Village Made From Shipping Containers


Brooklyn-based art cooperative United Photo Industries will host Photoville, a large-scale photographic village created with shipping containers in Brooklyn Bridge Park in summer 2012. Photoville starts Friday June 22, 2012 and runs through Sunday July 1, 2012.

This summer we are taking the next step in helping to create an extraordinary global community of artists. Working in partnership with local galleries, national institutions, and an international network of curatorial partners, we are building PHOTOVILLE – a unique, large-scale, photographic village with Shipping Containers in the heart of Brooklyn Bridge Park, at the Pier 3 Uplands, located on the Brooklyn Waterfront.

With its primary focus of celebrating photography in all its forms and across all levels, PHOTOVILLE will be a feisty mix of exhibitions, lectures, hands-on workshops, nighttime projections, photo dog run, and a summer beer-garden that will create a photographic destination like no other.


UPDATE: Photoville was featured in The New York Times Lens blog and is raising funds for the event via Kickstarter.
