Next Wave Art returns for its 12th season, opening up BAM’s unique exhibition spaces once again to an array of thought-provoking emerging and established artists. The celebration kicks off with a cocktail reception in the lobby of the Peter Jay Sharp Building on Monday, October 7. This annual program features the BAM+NADA Portfolio, an exclusive print edition presented in collaboration with New Art Dealers Alliance (NADA), a life-size stellarium by Ken Nintzel, and an imagined photographic history by Forrest Holzapfel. Next Wave Art runs concurrently with two other recently unveiled BAMart projects this fall, which include an interactive sculpture by Rachel Owens as part of TransCultural Express, and a mural by KAWS as part of BAM’s new bike park. Located throughout the BAM campus, most works will remain on view until Dec 22.
