A Moment Materialized is an ongoing exhibition designed to provide a glimpse into this unique moment, a moment shaped by a global health pandemic, a national call for greater racial, social, and economic justice, and a very local and personalized response to living and working through COVID-19.

Work selected illuminates how creative practices have been affected by this pandemic as well as capturing through materials what stats and quantitative data alone cannot. In short, the exhibition aims to visually capture a feeling, a sensation, a response to this unprecedented time through the eyes of working artists in Brooklyn, New York. 

Organized by Carli Beseau, Executive Director, Exhibits & Programs at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, on behalf of the organization's continued efforts to support its creative community during COVID-19.
