BRIC will collaborate with En Foco, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to cultural diversity in photography and celebrating its 38th year, to present a retrospective look at its prestigious New Works Photography Fellowship Award program. Since 1998, photographers selected for the program have produced highly diverse bodies of work; increasingly, the award has stimulated the creation of work that moves beyond the boundaries of traditional and toward unconventional forms of the photographic medium. This exhibit, curated by BRIC’s Director of Contemporary Art Elizabeth Ferrer, will include work by some 7 photographers, demonstrating the significance of En Foco’s award in extending their artistic practice. Works will include elaborately staged compositions, photos made with historic processes like tintype, wall sculpture based on appropriated images, and images made through varied forms of digital manipulation.

Artists Include:Jaishri Abichandani, Don Anton, Collette Fu, Charlie Grosso, Brenda Perry, Karen Miranda Rivadeneira, and Wendel White.
Opening Reception: Wednesday, January 9, 2012
