The third iteration of the BRIC Biennial: Volume III, South Brooklyn Edition, BRIC’s largest and most ambitious exhibition, features artists of exceptional creativity living and working in the neighborhoods of Park Slope, Gowanus, Sunset Park, and Bay Ridge. The show continues to highlight the significance of the borough as a place where artists create work and develop their careers.
The main exhibition, on view in the Gallery at BRIC House and titled, The Impossible Possible, contains the work of twenty artists. Rather than reflecting the current state of world affairs, these artists make work that looks inward, whether reflecting the sphere of the personal or some alternate reality.
This edition of the BRIC Biennial includes partnerships with more venues and institutions than ever before, with five satellite exhibitions taking place at locations across South Brooklyn, including Green-Wood Cemetery, La Bodega Art Space and Gallery, NARS Foundation, Ortega y Gasset Projects, Trestle Gallery, and a curated project by An/Other presented in the Project Room of BRIC House.
The BRIC Biennial is on view at BRIC House from February 7 through April 7, 2019. An opening reception will take place Wednesday, February 6 from 7–9 pm, and is free and open to the public.
BRIC is located at 647 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Gallery hours are Tuesday–Friday, 11 am–7 pm; Saturday and Sunday, 11 am–5 pm; and closed Mondays. Admission is free.
