Water Water Every Where at BRIC Rotunda Gallery
Brooklyn, NY – BRIC Arts | Media | Bklyn presents Water Water Every Where, a group exhibition examining water’s ubiquity – its presence in our everyday life, in geopolitical reality, and in transcendent moments of existence. “The condition of the New Yorker is to be surrounded by water and yet to be little aware of it,” says the exhibition’s curator and Director of Contemporary Art at BRIC, Elizabeth Ferrer. “We are largely island dwellers, residing in a city whose geography features rivers, creeks, channels, estuaries, tidal straits, a grand harbor, and the Atlantic Ocean. And yet we tend to look inward (and indeed, upwards), when imagining the contours of the city.” Water Water Every Where opens with a reception Wednesday, March 16, 2011 at BRIC Rotunda Gallery and will be on view through Saturday, April 30, 2011.
Water Water Every Where includes the work of seven artists, six based in New York, and one in Mexico City – Marie Lorenz, Mary Mattingly, Anne Percoco, Sreshta Rit Premnath, Joni Sternbach, Aleksei Stevens, and Kurt Hollander. Their work encompasses photography, video, installation, sculpture, work on paper, and sound projects, varied means that examine water’s inextricable presence in our lives.
