Moon (Jar) Landing - Pioneer Works
July 21, 2019 - Brooklyn

Nicholas Oh is a Korean American artist currently working in Brooklyn. Oh focuses on creating objects and installations that deal with race and identity. By creating and destroying clay replicas of Confederate statues, the artist explores changes in the statue's meaning through time and history. While many believe these statues were built to commemorate fallen soldiers during the Civil War, he looks deeper into their role in oppression and terror. The artist's ideas start by looking back on his own history and background (Oh was born in Wisconsin, but spent his early childhood in Korea). Nicholas Oh is a United States Marine Corps veteran. He received his MFA from Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, in 2018, after graduating with a BA from San Francisco State University, San Francisco, 2015. Oh's Residency is supported in part by a partnership with Rhode Island School of Design.

Karaoke Night! - The CopperPot
Through May 24, 2020 - Brooklyn

For the last 20+ years, restaurant and karaoke bar Hope & Anchor was a Red Hook staple — the menu was a stoner's dream and the drag karaoke brought people from all boroughs to the quiet streets of Red Hook. Hope & Anchor closed in April 2018, but it's not gone — the same family that ran that beloved establishment brought back the same neighborhood vibes, with a new name, a facelift, and the same great karaoke night. We've been called the "chillest karaoke night" and lauded as "thera-oke" (therapy karaoke!). Join us every Friday from 10pm-1am to sing your heart out!
