“When Artists Enter the Factories” is an invitation to explore the segregated yet inseparable relationship between manufacturing and artmaking in the architectural settings of the Brooklyn Army Terminal. By presenting sculptures, installations, photographs, videos, augmented reality, and a socially engaged project, artists in this exhibition intersect with contemporary manufacturing landscapes to explore their impact on everyday life. This exhibition unpacks entanglements between human and machine as well as the roles of artists and workers, through the refabrication of industrial materials.  “When Artists Enter the Factories” is inspired by a large-scale exhibition, Terminal New York, held at this same location in 1983. Thirty-six years later, 16 artists inhabit this former US military supply base.
