Artist NOoSPHERE Arts


Brooklyn, NY, USA


b. 2011   —   NOoSPHERE Arts is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded by Norwegian-born painter Sol Kjøk, now collaboratively run by a team of international artists and curators spanning three continents. Dedicated to bringing artists from elsewhere to New York, we are a mobile platform that produces and presents public arts programming across several venues around town. Our mission is to offer the U.S. audience access to current art from other countries and to bring creative people together for artistic cross-pollination and transnational collaborations. NOoSPHERE Arts opened its first presentation platform on February 4, 2011 in a storefront location on Houston Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. For five full years, the NOoSPHERE team staged exhibitions, performances, screenings, readings, workshops, and concerts in this original gallery space. At present, most NOoSPHERE Arts productions are hosted at several interrelated Brooklyn venues — Last Frontier NYC, Kingsland Wildflowers, and Mothership NYC — under the aegis of the organization in our continued commitment to bringing art from elsewhere to NYC. WE ARE NATURE Rooftop Series OUR 2021 SEASON WILL RUN FROM JUNE 6 THROUGH SEPTEMBER 26 Save the dates: June 6, June 25, July 31, August 28, Sep 10-12 & 25-26 Envisioned as an annual summer-long program, the WE ARE NATURE Rooftop Series takes place in and around the Kingsland Wildflowers native-flora gardens. Conceived by wildlife experts at NYC Audubon Society, these patches of green across four staggered rooftop levels offer a natural habitat for local fauna and migratory birds. Set against the 360 degrees view of the gritty, industrial environs, with the futuristic, space-like domes of Newton Creek Water Treatment Plant in the middle ground and Manhattan on the horizon, the stunning beauty of these multicolored flowering meadows shines even brighter: a rare nature sanctuary in surroundings increasingly hostile to all living beings. This spectacular setting is uniquely suited to engage a diverse audience in environmental efforts through art. The recurring WE ARE NATURE Rooftop Series offers a combination of multiple art forms – dance, music, performance, visual art, poetry, prose, and film – addressing humanity’s place in the greater All.
