From November 7th to the 23rd, The Newtown Creek Armada will present Remote Voyages, a gallery installation at the 111 Front Street Galleries in Dumbo, Brooklyn. The gallery will feature a video and sculpture installation by the project’s creators, IMA alumnae Sarah Wright, Laura Chipley and collaborator Nathan Kensinger.
