• Brooklyn Junior is attending RE/BUILD

    Faced with a slowing economy and excess capacity, Brooklyn-based manufacturer MPS is creating its own destiny.Having access to surplus materials, idle machinery, underutilized manpower, a vacant storefront and the inspired talents of a select group of creative minds, MPS hatches a plan.

    The RE/BUILD challenge is to design, develop and construct using only those resources available at the MPS shop. The furniture, sculpture, and objects of intrigue resulting from this collaborative endeavor will be on exhibit at Gallery 1889 in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Open festivities to be held on Friday, May 15th 2009 from 7PM until midnight. The exhibition will also be open during ICFF dates, from May 16th-19th, 12PM to 5PM.

    Gallery 1889 is a new and unique event space located at 1066 Manhattan Ave at Eagle Street. A long vacant storefront, now a place where designers, architects, artists and fabricators come together to reinvent, reimagine, revitalize, and RE/BUILD.
