Brooklyn Through the Eyes Of

Every two months, Amant invites an artist based in New York to choose a specific location in Brooklyn and lead a unique guided tour of the site, informed by personal questions and interests. Guest artists are encouraged to experiment with the format and style of their guided tours while unveiling the innumerable worlds and stories Brooklyn has to offer.

Please note that all tours are open to the general public (via RSVP) and the number of people allowed in each tour varies depending on the tour location and the guest artists’ preferences.
