Currently on view at BRIC house is the exhibition “RIDE or DIE”—a solo exhibition featuring newly commissioned work, curated by Elizabeth Ferrer (VP of Contemporary Art). The exhibition is on view through March 5th. [I hope to make it there this weekend! See our previous post ART EXHIBITION: “RIDE OR DIE” BY MIGUEL LUCIANO.] Gallery at BRIC House is located at 647 Fulton Street (enter on Rockwell Place), in Brooklyn, New York.
Description: A prominent mid-career artist based in Brooklyn, Miguel Luciano works in multiple media to examine issues of cultural identity, politics, and popular culture. BRIC has commissioned Luciano to create new work – sculptures featuring customized vintage Schwinn bicycles – that commemorate the traditions of Puerto Rican bike clubs in New York. He will exhibit this work along with paintings and historic ephemera that question the colonial relationship between the United States and Puerto Rico, at the centennial mark of U.S. Citizenship for Puerto Ricans (1917-2017). This body of work acts as a powerful commentary on the current economic and political crisis in Puerto Rico and examines its impact on the diaspora.
