Exhibitions at BRIC House 

Founded in 1981, BRIC's gallery (which was previously located in a couple different locations in Brooklyn Heights) is the oldest continuously operating contemporary art space in Brooklyn. Each season, the gallery presents exhibitions of emerging and mid-career artists, collaborative projects, and solo shows that reflect the borough’s diversity.

Public Programs

BRIC hosts free, drop-in programs for the public, curated in conjunction with current exhibitions, to engage audiences and facilitate interaction with the artworks on display. Events range from artist talks to literary reading series to performances that stimulate discussion about exhibition-related topics. Family Days, themed art-making workshops for kids and adults of all ages also run throughout the year.
