ISSUE plays a vital role in NYC’s cultural ecology, facilitating the commission and premiere of new works and presenting a diverse array of artists working across the disciplines of sound, dance, film, performance and literature. Programming places an emphasis on bringing recognition to creative practitioners whose important contributions to the artistic field are underrepresented, often as a result of the artists’ gender, sexuality, or geographic location. Through the cultivation of innovative new work, ISSUE performs an essential research and development function that fosters a dynamic influx of ideas into the local, national, and international creative landscape.
F or G Train to 'Carroll St' (fourth stop in Brooklyn from Manhattan). Exit at front of train. Walk 2.5 blocks from stop down Carroll.
(From the Brooklyn Battery (toll) Tunnel, use a right-hand toll lane and take the next to the right lane after the tolls and take the "Exit Only" lane for Exit 26, Hamilton Avenue. Stay/bear left down the exit ramp and go left under the highway (Stay to the right of the suppers that divide the road!) where you will be facing/about to cross Hamilton Avenue. Clinton Street is diagonally to your left, between Hamilton on the hard left and Huntington to the right. Go into Clinton street and continue on Clinton through 4th, 3rd, 2nd and 1st Places to Carroll Street. Parking is not a problem.
From the Brooklyn, Williamsburg or Manhattan Bridges, Queens, or Long Island, head S/W on the Brooklyn/Queens Expressway (BQE/278), towards the Verrazano Bridge. Stay in the center lane until Exit 26 to avoid getting caught up in the left and right exits-only. It is then the exact same exit and procedure as above because the BQE merges with the tunnel exit and the Gowanus Expressway just before that point.
