BRIC Stands With Our Black Community

A Letter From Our President:

In this moment of profound reckoning for our country, I'm stunned by having witnessed so brazenly the ongoing consequences of whiteness being weaponized against Black bodies. I grieve for the Black lives taken from us: George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others. I'm also pained by the toll COVID-19 has taken on our country, our city, our borough, and our neighbors. KEEP READING >>

Curated by Jenny Gerow, Assistant Curator

 

Trokon Nagbe is a Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artist and former BRIC Visual Artist in Residence who was born in Liberia, West Africa. Marrying performance and sculpture together, his large-scale works on paper and plastic are ripped, burned, and chewed to the point where the resulting object expresses both the destructive energy as well as fragile state of one’s body and soul. His installation in the Project Room will include sculpture, sound, and video.

The installation was conceived in dialog with the concurrent gallery exhibition Look up here, I’m in heaven.

Project Room exhibitions highlight solo projects by emerging artists whose work encompasses a rich range of themes and media.  

 

Venue Information:

The Project Room, located adjacent to the Gallery in BRIC House is an added resource for video work, BRIC's emerging curator program, small-scale exhibitions and experimental curatorial projects.
