TAB Art Brooklyn

TAB Art Brooklyn TAB presents dynamic exhibitions which intend to stimulate new pathways for the perception of the arts. TAB programs unify diverse forms of visual art, dance, performance, music, film, and interactive media into a live and audience-centric format.

The partnership of Triangle and Amuse Bouche (TAB) lends energy and support to artists from diverse artistic backgrounds who make the leap to work collaboratively. The platform provides the opportunity for artists who are working with an idea, to further deepen their investigation through sharing their processes of experimentation and interpretation. By involving artists from Brooklyn, the US and abroad, it is also an agent in developing the “glocal” arts community. The exhibition methodology derives from questioning the role of audience perception. We interrogate the idea, How does an audience receive multiple artworks within one timespace?, and the subsequent ideas, How may live art forms “activate” static forms? How does painting or sculpture cohabit in the present moment along with ephemeral performance? How does the audience “perform” in an exhibition timespace?

Some art history running through TAB 3's iconography:

We made a series of three visuals for Tab this time. We were inspired by the international art exposition called Documenta which started in Kassel in 1955. The exposition was based in the old Fredericanium Museum. It is an old museum and it was important for Germany to demonstrate cultural renewal Post-War, Post-Nazi, by transforming this cultural landmark into a positive space embracing modernism, the future, utopia, globalism, etc.

The fifth edition of the exposition, Documenta 5, was curated by Harald Szeemann in 1972. That was such an awesome time for art, especially minimalism and conceptual art. So for the 1972 Documenta, a design firm called Haus Rucker & Co. made this awesome installation of a big plastic bubble coming out of one of the windows on the Fredericanium’s façade. The piece, Oasis Nr. 7, included a metal gyroscope platform which allowed viewers from inside of the museum to enter into the middle of the bubble and take in the view of the park from this weird, isolated, and idyllic vantage point. There was even a palm tree in the bubble!

Since Tab is very much about the perception of the spectator, passageways, changing and unexpected viewpoints, we were inspired by Harald Szeemann’s Documenta 5, Haus Rucker & Co.’s Oasis Nr. 7, and wanted to appropriate original photographs in some of our marketing images for this third edition of Tab.

For their series TAB, Stephanie Browne, a visual artist, and Kay Ottinger, a dancer, focus on a facet of a show that some producers of performance art ignore: the audience.
