“In the spirit of gypsy caravans, tailgate parties, flea-meets, and car clubs, we are thrilled to announce I’m Loving It, a one-night-only, mobile gallery district temporarily congregating in an empty parking lot in the sleepy, industrial intersection of Greenpoint, Williamsburg and Bushwick between Staples and McDonald’s. A view of this parking lot from the street transports passer-bys into “anywhere USA”, while the view from the parking lot reveals a scene that is unmistakably Brooklyn. Artists and curators will create a one-night exhibition platform that links these two cultural vistas through something close to the heart of the American identity: the car.”

Set amidst three acres of parking lot, gallery, blackbox, and warehouse, M-WOW will take this undeniable American obsession to its illogical conclusion featuring an impressive array of high-end custom and collectible cars in conversation with automobile-inspired visual art. Complementing the landscape will be the sights, sounds and smells typically associated with a state fair including: fried things, metal/psych rock bands, burnt rubber,  sledge hammers hitting steel, charcoal grills, pirate radio and more! Don’t miss this opportunity to kick off the

summer right!
