Quoted from Brooklyn Night Bazaar press release:
“Williamsburg, NY… Brooklyn Night Bazaar, a recurring nighttime market readies for the holidays with an extravagant showcase for independent artists, crafters, chefs, designers, and musicians in a 40,000 sq foot warehouse with 30-foot ceilings on the waterfront. Founder and Brooklynite Aaron Broudo was inspired by the Southeast Asian night markets — where a manic energy infuses with music as locals and tourists sample dishes and bargain for objects. Brooklyn’s version is a mega-pop-up platform that commingles indie music, handmade zines, homegrown jams, projected art videos and giant helium balloons.
Broudo has tapped Ken Farmer, the Creative Director of Nuit Blanche New York (NBNY), to orchestrate the artistic vision behind this part street fair, part art fair, and part concert to take place over the three nights of December 15-17. Highlights include a curated vendor area of innovative retail entrepreneurs like Playbutton, Kill Devil Hill, and Sit & Read; an artist-designed half pipe that will double as the music stage; as well as video installations and light projections curated by NBNY, the group who helmed the Bring to Light festivals in Greenpoint. Architect Julien De Smedt, whose recent ski jump in Norway garnered numerous awards, has been commissioned to masterplan the market and design special furniture for the space.
Brooklyn Night Bazaar re-imagines the sights, sounds and smells of the market and provides an environment that supports the local creative economies by encouraging artistic expression.”
