Slutzky creates drawings and paintings based on photographic images found in instructional manuals, visual arts textbooks, interior design catalogs, and family scrapbooks, many of which were published between the 1950s and 70s.

Support BRIC's transformative work

This September we reopened BRIC House to our Brooklyn community with two groundbreaking Contemporary Art exhibitions. In our Project Room, we showcased Sophia-Yemisi Adeyemo’s debut show Earth & Iron: Archival Visions of Land and Struggle, which grew out of her work as a BRIClab artist-in-residence.

BRIClab offers year-long support to 18 artists and teams over four disciplines: Contemporary Art, Performing Arts, Video Art, and Film + TV. Other BRIClab alumni include Grammy-winner Ty Defoe, Brooklyn-based theater collective The TEAM, and Sarah E. Brook, whose work is currently on display at the Lena Horne Bandshell.

We were able to do a lot of things in 2022 and, with your support, aspire to do even more in 2023. Give today to help us support work that could only happen at BRIC. https://bit.ly/bricgiving2022

In February 2022, BRIC convened the third cycle of the Intergenerational Community Arts Council (ICAC). Public housing residents and neighbors from Fort Greene and Downtown Brooklyn spent a year collaborating with BRIC artists and staff to create values-driven programming by, with, and for their communities.

In June, the ICAC held an event celebrating their collaborative work "Resources for Joy,” a free book of community-sourced poems, practices, recommendations, and recipes for healing and inspiration designed through virtual gatherings during COVID-era lockdowns. Over 1,500 copies of “Resources for Joy” have been shared with local residents and partners since first being published.

Uniting our communities through a shared goal of healing, artistic creation, and celebration is at the core of our work at BRIC. Make a gift today to help support restorative, community-driven work! https://bit.ly/bricgiving2022

"Sophia-Yemisi Adeyemo presents the colonized memory as a fractional space, using a cut-up method to accentuate the gaps. Based on 20th-century photography from West Africa and the Caribbean, Adeyemo’s sparse paintings and sculptures render scenes of subjection into fragments of guerrilla fugitivity."

It Could Only Happen At BRIC | Giving Tuesday

At BRIC JazzFest 2022 we presented 18 boundary-pushing acts, including HERA – a group of powerhouse female artists who debuted on the festival stage. Led by Chelsea Baratz, who brought together five incredible artists, HERA performed together for the first time for the BRIC JazzFest audience after being connected by guest curator Maurice Brown.

Every musician in HERA has her own band, her own original music, and her own sound outside of the group, but when they came together they made something never seen before.

That kind of magic could only happen at BRIC.

Will you make a tax-deductible gift by December 31st and support BRIC’s creative magic? bit.ly/bricgiving2022
