The first in a new series of projection mapped artworks commissioned by the Brooklyn Public Library, The Brooklyn Gaze will transform the facade of the Brooklyn Library into an immersive, animated canvas, and the library plaza into an arena of animated conversation. BPL Presents, in collaboration with visual artists Mark Read and Jeanne Angel, have produced a unique, original piece that aims to spark critical community dialogue on the most pressing social and political issues of our time. 

This first edition of the Brooklyn Gaze: Erasure and Revelation will be a multimedia event that you won't want to miss. In addition to live video projections, the audience will be treated to a musical performance by Brooklyn-based band Les Nubians

Les Nubians is an Afropean, Urban, R&B Grammy-nominated duo composed of sisters Hélène and Célia Faussart from Paris France. Their sound is an innovative mix of hip hop, neo soul and African music. To critical acclaim, the duo's debut album Princesses Nubiennes was released by Virgin Records, France, in 1998. In 2011, they released Nü Revolution.

Erasure and Revelation will amplify and electrify the thoughts of such diverse and essential thinkers as Martin Luther King Jr., Black Elk, W.E.B. Du Bois, Hannah Arendt and Sojourner Truth. By sharing their enduring eloquence in public, and revealing the urgent questions hidden within their most famous writings, Erasure and Revelation will activate the archive of wisdom that is the Public Library System.
