The Brucennial began in 2008 in their first studio, a former weed growing operation next to the High Times Deliverance Church on the edge of Bushwick and Bed-Stuy under the JMZ. Since the beginning the Brucennial has expanded into larger spaces including hundreds more artists from all over the world. It’s not a curated group show or an anointment ceremony into the art market or a “taking of the temperature” or a codification of style. It’s a celebration of, and catalyst for, an ever-widening community of artists.
It’s the Brucennial’s interest to design circumstances that grow this community, both in numbers and in critical depth, beyond the limitations of a temporary exhibition. They started a free art school now located in the East Village, BHQFU, with this exact mission. And going forward they will be expanding their class offerings and residencies, building a communal studio program, and creating student exhibitions, publications, and other showcases.
This is the grand finale. The coup de grâce. The Last Brucennial. It’s going to be amazing!
Dates: March 6 – April 4, 2014.
