The Standing On The Corner Art Ensemble was founded in 2016 and functions best in Brooklyn, New York. The collective produces musical, visual, and experiential works that equate hyperlocal incidence to cosmological wisdom. Visiting sites of emotional resonance under the weight of subjective histories, the Art Ensemble seeks to uncover the mysteries and ghosts of hidden truths through focused interpretation.
