En Foco is proud to present the exhibition En Foco: New Works/Crossing Boundaries, in
collaboration with BRIC Arts | Media | Bklyn. Curated by Elizabeth Ferrer, BRIC’s Director of Contemporary Art, this exhibition highlights
the work of seven artists who have been selected to receive En Foco’s prestigious New Works Photography Fellowship, an annual juried
award program that fosters the creation of new work. This exhibition will focus on photographers who have used the award to create bodies
of work that move beyond the boundaries of conventional forms of the photographic medium, and extend their artistic practice. The
opening reception will take place Wednesday, January 9, 7-9pm at BRIC Rotunda Gallery, 33 Clinton Street, Brooklyn Heights, and the
show will be on view through February 23, 2013. Admission is free.
En Foco: New Works/Crossing Boundaries includes work by artists Jaishri Abichandani, Don Gregorio Antón, Collette Fu, Charlie
Grosso, Brenda Perry, Karen Miranda-Rivadeneira, and Wendel White.
The exhibition features photo-based work produced with an array of approaches and modes of presentation, and focusing on a wide range of subject matter – from Antón’s contemplative, spiritual self-portraits placed in ornate copper reliquaries, to Miranda-Rivadeneira’s staged scenes of childhood memories enacted by members of her family, to Grosso’s provokingly candid series documenting each bed she spent the night in while traveling the world, questioning the idea of “home.”
