The sixth annual Photoville, held under the Brooklyn Bridge, will run for five days with exhibitions that explore immigration, American identity, and other noteworthy themes, such as climate change. Peek into 55 shipping containers for a unique outdoor photography exhibit in Dumbo.

There will be presentations, panels, lectures, workshops and interactive programs touching on all things photography.

A film, the Newest Americans will follow the immigrant experience on a local campus, and one of the country's most diverse, Rutgers University-Newark, telling the story through art, photos, and film. Other features include Finding Home, a project following the lives of four Syrian refugee mothers and their babies, Facing Change: Documenting Detroit, a community photojournalism initiative, and Nichole Sobecki’s A Climate for Conflict, which shares the story of climate change in Somalia, and Killing the Black Snake: Resistance at Standing Rock.

Find additional outdoor installations and displays in tents and cubes in this sixth annual Photoville. The first four nights will also feature the multimedia presentations of the Photoville Nighttime Series, which showcase author readings and performances alongside documentary screenings.

Vendors will be on site for you to peruse, as well as a food and beer garden. The exhibit is stroller friendly!
