If you’re in NYC this evening, be sure to make it out to this. Should be a good one. Check out the details below…
If you’re in NYC this Friday, we suggest you make your way over to KIX NYC and check out a new photo exhibit by a friend we love Bobbito Garcia + his partner in crime Kevin Couliau. The dynamic duo have been hard at work putting the finishing touches on their new documentary on NYC pick-up basketball called “Doin’ it in the Park.” Instead they will exhibit those in 2012 in connection with the release of the film.
The photos are not stills from the film but rather an exploration into Gracia and Couliau’s passion of photography in the environment they know best, the b-ball courts of NYC.
359 Lafayette St.
New York, NY
Friday, October 7
6:00pm – 10:00pm
About the Exhibit:
Kevin Couliau and Bobbito Garcia have been touring the NYC playgrounds for quite some time now. Whenever they were not playing ball or talking smack themselves, they took pictures and videos capturing the unique atmosphere that can only be found in the Mekka of basketball. Reason enough to highlight some of their works in an exhibition that will portrait the basketball spirit of NYC with passion and attention to detail like it has never been done before!
Check out more info on the show after the jump…
