powerHouse Arena


In fall 2006, world-renowned and critically acclaimed publisher powerHouse Books launched The POWERHOUSE ARENA, a laboratory for creative thought and premier venue for exhibitions, installations, presentations, displays, viewings, performances and readings. Located at 28 Adams Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn, The POWERHOUSE ARENA is an exhibition space, boutique bookstore and event space. A singular and utterly unique space, the Arena’s versatility is unmatched by any other in New York City, with floor views of the East River waterfront set against the breathtaking backdrop of the Brooklyn Bridge, Empire-Fulton Ferry Warehouse, and the stately Manhattan Bridge.

Since its inception, The POWERHOUSE ARENA has hosted a series of landmark exhibitions and events, including the St. Ann’s Warehouse after party for the world premiere performance of Lou Reed’s Berlin; The Creators Project; VICE Magazine & Intel’s festival fusing the worlds of art and technology, VH1’s Hip Hop Honors Week; The New YorkerSpeakeasy; PEN World Voices; the National Book Foundation’s “5 Under 35” event; the NYC location for the Paul Frank Academy of Awesome US Tour and the product launch for Absolut’s Absolut Brooklyn, an infused vodka collaboration with Spike Lee. Past events have also been held for MTV/Viacom, Columbia University, Pratt Institute, and the Brooklyn Film Festival among many others.
