Hard Knock Life

@ The powerHouse Arena
Brooklyn, NY
Through March 31, 2008

OPENING RECEPTION: March 21, 6-8pm

Crackheads, true love, gangstas, motorcycles, hope, babymommas and burners. In the age of The Wire, young boys with guns aren’t a shocker anymore – only this is real and it isn’t Baltimore – it’s Brooklyn. When we first received It’s All Good a few years ago, Boogie’s visual chronicle of some of NYC’s toughest neighborhoods sat in our lap as a testament of the beauty found in the everyday reality going on in a hood near you. In support of his second work Boogie, powerHouse presents selected prints from his massive archive. Check for us at the opening.
