Anonymous Brooklyn is for everyone.

Anonymous Brooklyn is an installation built one person at a time. Over the course of New York City Jewelry Week all artists are invited to bring a piece of jewelry for display In the Gallery at Brooklyn Metal Works. All the work will be placed on one wall, and each artist will have only small nails to hang their piece. (We will have a hammer of course!) This is an accumulation, an accretion. Whoever hangs the first piece gets the first pick of placement and from there it grows. It might grow over, it might grow under. No artist will harm the work of another, but elbows will rub, hair may fall in your eyes, and proximity will certainly alter perception.

This call for entries in ongoing throughout the installation period. We will accept works until the installation closes on Nov. 20 at 5pm.

Drop off and installation:
November 15 – 19, 11am – 6pm
November 20, 11am – 5pm

Opening November 20, 6 – 9pm

Bring us your jewelry. One person, one piece. Check our open hours to bring and install the work. Your work will go through a formal documentation process where we photograph the work and receive your information. You will be given a coat check number in exchange for your work. You will participate in an installation performance. You will be photographed installing the piece and all pertinent information about that piece will be offered to the interwebs on all of our available platforms. Participants must be willing to wear a mask while performing these tasks. No name attribution will ever be publicly associated with the works or released by BKMW. If a work sells the name of the artist will be disclosed to the buyer if desired.
