Artist Man Bartlett to Take Over Brooklyn Museum’s Twitter and Instagram

April 18, 2013 | Kyle Chayka

Starting tomorrow, Brooklyn based artist and Twitter extraordinaire, Man Bartlett will be taking over both the Brooklyn Museum‘s Twitter and Instagram feeds during the Brooklyn Artist’s Ball. This years event celebrates Brooklyn artists and the borough’s ever changing, thriving, creative community. During the event and its concurrent auction Man will be working with Barry Hoggard on the project asking what they can bring to the table, in the words of Man himself:

The People’s Table is a virtual collection of images submitted by people around the world in response to the question, “What do you bring to the table?” It is meant to act as a reminder of the multitude of ways that people attribute value to objects and ideas in culture, while simultaneously offering access without regard to significant financial or societal limitations. Anyone with access to an Internet connection can bring themselves, and their vision to the table. Additionally, this collection will be projected for the guests of the 2013 BK Ball, where they will be invited to participate as well.

Make sure to check out the hashtag #table17 on both The Brooklyn Museum’s Twitter and Instagram for updates.
