Open (C)All: Truth - BRIC
Through December 17, 2017 - Brooklyn

Closed Mondays We all know that Art is not truth. Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies. ~ Pablo Picasso We live in an era when truth is under assault. In a time of alternative truths and truthiness, we ask that you show us your truth. What is real and true for you? BRIC's open call exhibitions—presented every other year in the Gallery of BRIC House—feature the work of over 125 artists and are open to all members of the BRIC Contemporary Artist Registry. BRIC's Registry is free and open to artists who were born, live, or work in Brooklyn.

Fernanda Mello: Mirror's Inhabitants - BRIC
Through January 07, 2018 - Brooklyn

Working primarily in painting and drawing, Fernanda Mello reinterprets folkloric culture she learned as a child growing up in Brazil. A self-taught artist, Mello derives her artistic inspiration from her studies of South American tribes and shamans of the Amazon region. In Mirror's Inhabitants, she catalogs the life of Davi Kopenawa, an important indigenous shaman from Brazil who advocated for rainforest conservation and indigenous rights in light of the arrival of gold miners and their diseases in his region. Fernanda Mello has exhibited at Greenpoint Gallery, Brooklyn; the Fort Tilden National Recreation Area; the Regents Canal Festival and The Brick Lane Gallery, both in London; Grand Palais, Paris; Galeria Olho d'Agua, Brasilia; and FilaAC, São Paulo. She is the recipient of an award from the National Endowment for the Arts and currently resides in Brooklyn.

Leigh Davis: An Inquiry into the Ele - BRIC
Through January 07, 2018 - Brooklyn

Closed Mondays Intrigued by the complicated relationship people have with death and grief, Leigh Davis explores the moments directly proceeding, during, or right after someone loses a loved one. Working in a variety of media, Davis creates an archive of End-of-Life Experiences (or ELEs), which can be described as any sort of deathbed coincidence, premonition, change in atmosphere, or peculiar vision. Through interactions with funeral directors, hospice nurses, religious leaders, and people of all spiritual backgrounds, Davis has accumulated an assemblage of images and oral and written accounts that bridge the mystical gap between the earthly realm and that of the spiritual.
