Organized by Brooklyn artist Julie Torres, ‘What I Like About You’ is a continuation of last year’s Alltogethernow project, in which 11 international painters visited Bushwick for BOS 2012, to collaborate with local artists and exhibit those collaborations alongside their own work.

This year, artists are returning to showcase the work of artists they met and whose work they saw last year. New participants who weren’t present in 2012 have chosen artists’ work they have been interested in from afar.

19 international artists will arrive in Bushwick to select one piece from their chosen Brooklyn artist, and show that work alongside their own with a brief explanation of what drew them to that artists’ work.

I have chosen to exhibit with the excellent Alex Paik.
