BRIC is pleased to present Mary Mattingly: What Happens After, an exhibition of large-scale sculpture, photography, and a monumental wall-based flow chart, that poses the question: what happens when an object that embodies both the systemic violence represented by war and by climate change is manifested in a public space? When we’re able to collaboratively change the form and function of an object with a violent and complex history, it can be powerful. Can it be healing?
The show is on view from September 13 through November 11, 2018, at BRIC House, home to Downtown Brooklyn’s largest contemporary art gallery. An opening reception will take place September 12 from 7–9 pm, free and open to the public.
At the center of this new work, commissioned by BRIC on the occasion of its 40th anniversary, is a 19,000-pound, military cargo truck that has been deconstructed and transformed in BRIC’s Gallery. Twelve artists and activists were engaged in creatively redesigning the cargo truck as a platform for performance, conversation, and transformation. Public programs presented by a number of these artists, as well as many of the events taking place in October at BRIC House, will be staged on the vehicle.
BRIC is located at 647 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Gallery hours are Monday–Saturday, 10 am–6 pm; Sunday, 12–6 pm; closed Mondays. Admission is free.
