Bushwick-3mph Tours


Tour #1

Upcoming Dates: Feb.2 & 3 –> RSVP here

What we’ll do

Join art-3mph as we visit the studios of Brooklyn-based artists Anne Arden McDonald, and Vanessa Albury, whose work is pushing the boundaries of Photography. We will meet the artists in the intimacy of their studios and learn about their alternative photographic methods in a discussion about work. We know it’s cold outside, so we’re making sure our studios are very close to one another. Minimal walking required. We’ve also picked out a super cosy and trendy cafe as our finale. Meeting point will be shared with RSVP. Every walking tour comes with our own custom-made zine by the founders of art-3mph.

The Artists

Anne Arden McDonald works in photography (with and without cameras), sculpture, printmaking, and installation. From ages fifteen to thirty she made photographic self portraits by building installations in the landscape or in abandoned interiors, performing privately for her camera in these spaces. More recently she has been making process-inspired images and site-specific installations that include photography and sculpture. Her work has been exhibited in contexts that range from self-portrait, staged, ritual, plastic camera, antique process, and experimental photography, to sculptural installations as large as a room and as small as a pocket watch. @anneardenmcdonald

Vanessa Albury was born in Nashville, TN in 1978 and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. She received her MFA in Studio Art from New York University’s Steinhardt School. Albury uses analog materials to discuss ephemerality and invites spontaneous occurrences in everyday moments as a means to access the sublime. Ken Johnson of The New York Times calls her work “haunting.” Her solo show Arctic, Future Relics is on view now at Nurture Art in Bushwick. @vanessaalbury

Join this opportunity to meet and discover Brooklyn artists in the intimacy and magic of their studios.

Rehan Miskci’s work is a delicate examination of absence, displacement and invisibility. Her work mainly derives from archives, and can be seen as one of the many possible interpretations of these archives. @rehanmiskci
Audrée Anid is a Lebanese/American mixed-media artist whose work spans photography, painting, and printmaking. Audrée was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and grew up in the Bronx, New York. @audreejanid
