About "Inspired by Brooklyn"

The Brooklyn vibe is in the room at this cabaret-style series presented in connection with CBH’s current exhibition, “Brooklyn Is…”.  With a musical performance followed by a Brooklyn-centric documentary, “Inspired by Brooklyn” celebrates the people, neighborhoods, and spirit of Brooklyn. 


Featured Performer

With a passion for storytelling, the beauty of lyricism, and bringing Southeast Asian artists to the forefront of the music industry, Zoe Tan is the next new Malaysian-Chinese singer-songwriter in the Indie Pop-Folk scene. She is a student at the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, and currently lives in Brooklyn. At 23 years old she has opened for artists in Malaysia such as Yuna and Lunadira, and played in the Urbanscapes Festival where Glass Animals headlined. In New York, she has played at the pinkFROG café and S.O.B.’s., and she is currently working on the release of her debut single.
 

Featured Documentary

Flex is Kings is a riveting and awe-inspiring look inside the world of Brooklyn street dancing known as ‘flexing.’ Directors Michael Beach Nichols and Deidre Schoo take audiences along on the emotional journey of several young dancers; dancers who vie for a chance to make something of themselves by battling it out through this DIY art form.

Presented in partnership with the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts.
