JOIN US FOR THE 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.
Nana Yaa Asare Boadu (IG: @lalanana7) will perform at the opening reception, responding to the work of Kennedy Yanko.
The 3,000 square-foot Gallery in BRIC House has soaring 18-foot ceilings that permit major exhibitions focusing on emerging and mid-career artists and curators.
