What's Your War @ Five Myles

(Sabrina Saneaux- Made in the Dominican Republic, 2007, at Five Myles Gallery)

Five Myles Gallery, on St. John's between Classon and Franklin, routinely brings fascinating art experiences to Crown Heights, and they've hosted their share of community events as well, including Experience the Heights and the preview screening of "Gentrifying Brooklyn." On Saturday from 4:30-7:30pm, they open a brand-new group show entitled "What's Your War," co-curated by Oasa DuVerney (whose work was featured in the "Pink Elephant" show at MOCADA and partially inspired my own long-winded think piece on indifference last spring) and Sarah McCann. It looks to be a fascinating show - click the links above for more information and read their blurb below:

Given the multitude of wars the US is fighting - the war in Iraq, the war on drugs, the war on terror, the war in Afghanistan - the curators of the exhibition asked the participating artists what would be their own personal war against, if they had the power to declare one.
