NewImage

Check out this exhibition if you’re in Brooklyn before January 15! From BRIC:

The work of hundreds of artists based in Bedford-Stuyvesant and Crown Heights were reviewed in order to select the approximately 40 included in this exhibition. Overall, the BRIC Biennial highlights the significance of Brooklyn as the place where New York artists create work and develop their careers. By focusing on a small geographic area, comprehensive research can be undertake on artists in the selected neighborhoods, highlighting those who are making important creative contributions with their work. This edition of the BRIC Biennial at BRIC House will focus on the theme “Affective Bodies,” drawing from affect theory, which places emphasis on bodily experience rather than on learned knowledge. Artists exhibited at Weeksville Heritage Center will be grouped under the theme “The Lived City,” considering how people’s lives and experiences endow urban spaces with emotional resonance. The exhibition at the the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, “Translations and Annotaitons,” will include the work of five artists who use existing texts and documents as source material. By processes of alteration, annotation, translation, and reinterpretation, these artists endow these texts with new, emotional quality, relevant to their lives and to the time in which we live. (On view at BPL January 31, 2017.) And finally, FiveMyles will focus on presenting a series of performance artists.
