OPENING RECEPTION: JUNE 27, 2018 | 7-9PM
ON VIEW: JUNE 28 - AUGUST 12, 2018
CURATED BY: ELIZABETH FERRER & JENNY GEROW

Alchemy presents the work of seven artists whose work reflects new ways of thinking about the ancient concept of alchemy – the transformation of matter. Employing diverse media, these artists transform non-conventional materials to create visually layered statements about the body and gender, race, and the environment. Their work – including large-scale installations and work commissioned by BRIC – also manifests the potential for the spiritual to be drawn out from the quotidian world around us. As is BRIC’s tradition for summer exhibitions, Alchemy will be accompanied by a series of lively Wednesday evening and Friday afternoon public programs including those dedicated to conversation, performance, dance, and the healing arts.

Exhibiting artists include Nicole Awai, Serra Victoria Bothwell Fels, Borinquen Gallo, Phoebe Grip, Miatta Kawinzi, Anna Riley, and Kennedy Yanko.

Nana Yaa Asara Boadu (@lalanana7) will perform at the opening reception, responding to the work of Kennedy Yanko.
