Brooklyn, NY ---Transparent Studio at Bose Pacia is pleased to announce the current artists-in-residence duo, Faranú & Mike Redman. Their multidisciplinary project, cleverly titled Diagonals Used for Mapping Brooklyn’s Overview, will conceptually map the DUMBO neighborhood.

The final project will be on display on Thursday, 7 February 6 - 9pm with an evening of transformation and collaboration with avant-garde jazz musician, Bomb Sun. The public is invited to visit Transparent Studio throughout Faranú & Mike Redman’s residency to talk with the artists about their process. Studio hours are by appointment only.

About Transparent Studio at Bose Pacia, NY:
Launched in January 2012, Transparent Studio is a visual arts program founded by Bose Pacia. Emerging and mid career artists are chosen for the studio program through a submissions process based on project proposal and artistic merit. Residents are provided with a studio in the main gallery space for a 1-3 month period. By turning our ground level gallery space into a temporary artist studio in an active arts neighborhood, we are fostering an atmosphere of engagement and conversation around the creative process. During the program, the public is invited to interact with the artist throughout their creative process allowing exchange and collaborative relationships.

Studio hours are by appointment only.
