BRIC Youth Curatorial Exhibition: THIS I BELIEVE

Exhibition Info

Hours: Wed-Sun, 11AM-6PM


THIS I BELIEVE is planned, promoted, designed, and judged entirely by media-savvy high school students as part of the BRIC Youth Curatorial Fellowship Program.


Life is full of paradoxes. We live in a dystopian world where a watermelon filter is our only hope. People only take risks when they are completely safe. We aim to take over the space around us. We aim to take these risks, and we aim to enact change. We don’t want to waste potential. We don’t want neurological abstractions, algorithms, and academics. How much of your life can you describe in paragraphs, rather than statistics? What do YOU believe in, throughout all the stages of your life?
