It’s easy to create a metaphorical relationship between street basketball and the random nature of life. As the film’s co-director, Bobbito Garcia points out “There are no coaches, no referees, no schedule. It’s open to the pubic, competitive, and creative.
The exhibition features the work of photographers and painters. Photographs in the exhibition include images of pick-up ball players and basketball courts from all over the world including the United States, Argentina, China, Singapore, and Thailand.
While all of the work in the Doin’ It In The park is directly inspired by the content of the film, the exhibiting painters and photographers were allowed the creative freedom to interpret the spirit, energy and iconography of pick-up basketball in their own unique way!
