The Brooklyn Museum’s Target First Saturdays celebrations have long been one of the museum and its surrounding community’s most popular events. April’s free celebration of arts and culture, called “A Breath of Fresh Air,” will feature a genre-bending songstress, an existential documentary, hands-on crafting and more.
The first event of the spring season kicks off at 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 2. Here’s what’s on deck:
- Pop music with a twist: Indian folksinger Falu, who’s previously performed at the museum, will kick off the evening with her Hindustani classical pop fusion.
- Existential film screening: Check out Guy Reid’s Planetary, a documentary regarding humans’ relationship with one another in the context of our cosmic origins.
- Dance break: Catch Latin ska band Brown Rice Family’s 7 p.m. performance.
- Arts and crafts: Create scrolls and paint papier-mâché beads, to be incorporated into a community mural at City Point.
- Something good for the soul: Desiree Bailey will perform a “deep-sea poetic exploration” of everything from mermaids to the Haitian Revolution
