BRIClab is a multi-disciplinary residency program created to advance opportunities for visual artists, performers, and media makers. 

The BRIClab: Contemporary Art track offers visual artists technical support, space, feedback, and resources to develop and advance their innovative projects. Artist applications are received through an open call and chosen by a panel of prominent curators, artist alumni, and BRIClab program managers.
