BROOKLYN, NY | September 16, 2013 – BRIC is pleased to present Housewarming: Notions of Home from the Center of the Universe, the first exhibition of the 2013-14 season and the inaugural exhibition presented in BRIC Arts | Media House, BRIC’s new 40,000-square-foot multidisciplinary arts and media complex located at 647 Fulton Street in the Downtown Brooklyn Cultural District. Housewarming will be a celebratory show, introducing the public to BRIC’s new 3,000-square-foot gallery space with its monumental interior stoop, while exploring the concept of “home” from a number of broad vantage points. Eight of the 12 artists featured in the exhibition will present works
commissioned by BRIC; three of the works in the show are site-specific. Curated by BRIC’s Director of Contemporary Art, Elizabeth Ferrer, Housewarming will be on view October 3 through December 15, 2013, with a special opening reception held on October 9 from 7-9pm. Admission to BRIC’s gallery is free.

Artists Njideka Akunyili, Sonya Blesofsky, Margaret Reid Boyer, Drew Hamilton, Katarina Jerinic & Chad Stayrook, Esperanza Mayobre, Abraham McNally, Garry Nichols, Keisha Scarville, Vargas-Suarez Universal and Nathan Wasserbauer explore the idea of “home” as a flexible, variable concept revealed in a myriad of ways, and influenced by an individual’s history and personal accumulation of places. At its most intimate, home is literally where the heart is; it is the memories and feeling of intimacy we each carry of our own, individual sense of home. It also refers to the domestic sphere, the places we live, the things that surround us, the material objects that become physical markers of home. On the social sphere, home is our neighborhood, the urban and social fabric. In the broadest, universal and most poetic sense, home is the cosmos and the sphere of the unknowable.

The works exhibited will range in scale and medium – from Vargas-Suarez Universal’s monumentally scaled, digitally printed mural to be mounted on the façade of BRIC House and spanning over 30 feet, to the intimate, wall-mounted sculptures of Abraham McNally measuring, for the most part, less than one foot.
Elizabeth Ferrer, Curator and BRIC’s Director of Contemporary Art, said: “Housewarming has been curated to introduce BRIC’s much-expanded gallery space as well as a range of Brooklyn-based artists, to a broad public. The theme of this exhibition – notions of home – is both universal and deeply personal. We all have our own experiences of “home” – family, place, even the borough of Brooklyn. The artists in Housewarming negotiate between the experience of the universal and personal providing us with an opportunity to think about the role of home and place in the formation of our own identities. What better a way to introduce our new gallery space, that itself has undergone so many uses (vaudeville theater, film theater, bowling alley), before BRIC called it home.”
