OPENING RECEPTION: January 17, 2018 | 7-9PM
EXHIBITION ON VIEW: January 18 - February 25, 2018
Master Work: Slaves of New York 1776, part of Kenseth Armstead's ongoing Farther Land project, will envelop BRIC’s Project Room with one duck feather for each slave in the colony of New York at the time of the American Revolution. The sculptural forms and materials of his work are derived from revolutionary-era symbolic content and amounting to twenty thousand feathers, each tarred onto a translucent perforated steel frame, Armstead directly challenges the denial and censorship necessary to perpetuate myths of meritocracy and the American Dream.
Kenseth Armstead is a 2017-18 recipient of the ArtFP, an open call for Brooklyn-based visual artists to exhibit at BRIC House. For more information, visit BRICartsmedia.org/ArtFP.
