BRIC Since 1979, BRIC has provided a creative home for artists and audiences in Brooklyn. Learn more: http://www.BRICartsmedia.org
In the 40 years since its founding as a not-for-profit organization in 1979, BRIC has been the driving force behind a number of Brooklyn’s most widely renowned and beloved arts and media programs. In the borough that is now this country’s foremost creative hotbed, BRIC is unparalleled in its combination of artistic excellence, programmatic breadth and genuine accessibility. BRIC presents live music and performing arts (the Celebrate Brooklyn! Performing Arts Festival and BRIClab), contemporary art exhibitions and programs (until 2013 at BRIC Rotunda Gallery and throughout the borough), and community media programs (Brooklyn Free Speech, BRIC TV, and Brooklyn Bulletin Board) that reflect Brooklyn’s creativity and diversity. Emphasizing creative expression as varied and groundbreaking as the borough it serves, BRIC provides opportunities and platforms for Brooklyn artists and media makers to create and present new works. The organization champions the creativity of Brooklyn and work that expands the boundaries of artistic disciplines. BRIC’s highly accessible exhibitions, performances, television programs and educational programs serve more than one million Brooklyn residents, including some 4,000 school children, each year.

Starting to feel numb from the infinite scroll of social media? 🤳

Join us this Friday for Project 404, a workshop on the practice of attention in conjunction with our Serious Play exhibition in the Gallery. The practice of Project 404 aspires to help us remain active and creatively engaged with our environment and ourselves, and consists of two phases: a silent phase of sixteen minutes in which we'll look intently together at a single image using our individual devices. The next phase is a colloquy or conversation of about 60 minutes, during which the we'll will discuss our experiences of the silent phase (with devices put aside).

So bring yourself and your devices on FRI, JUL 12, 12:30-2PM!

The Best of Summer Group Shows: 5 Emerging Artists Who Deserve Solos Next Season

"Curators Jenny Gerow and Elizabeth Ferrer have assembled an enthralling group of artists this season for their play-focused group exhibition at BRIC, introducing many viewers to the work of installation artist and sculptor Kat Chamberlin for the first time...Material slippage pushes against the borders of social commentary in Chamberlin's work, and the results flash a creepy, acidic spotlight on the performances we require of women in public space."

Thank you Artspace for the shout-out to our gallery exhibition Serious Play and to the amazing work of Kat Chamberlin!

CAFÉ MURAL | David Rios Ferreira: Don't you see I got everythin' you need

We have a new café mural going up this week! Artist David Rios Ferreira's new work makes references to monster movies from his childhood like Godzilla, representing disturbances in the urban landscape. Combined with cartoonish characters and hints of historical structures, the hybridity of this imagery becomes a metaphor for the process of cultural appropriation and reconstitution crucial to identity-making in our postcolonial society.

Celebrate this new mural with us this Thu, Jun 27 at 7PM!

Miguel Luciano | Ride or Die

"[Puerto Rico] was industrialized and developed with U.S. business interests in mind, and our interests second. I didn't learn about this in school. I learned about it through a bike." For #BikeToWorkDay and #FBF, we're throwing it it back to Miguel Luciano's 2017 exhibition "Ride or Die," which explored the colonial history of the U.S. in Puerto Rico, and how that history informs relations to this day. Watch the full video and hear Miguel elaborate on the exhibition: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdFePUVVKCI
