View “Object Stories”
Brice used his time at the Bethany Arts residency this fall to develop ideas of community and participatory artworks. Inspired by dozens of images of objects submitted by community members, “Object Stories” documents people’s relationships to the personal things around the home that shape our everyday lives. Along with work made at Bethany, Brice will talk about previous projects leading up to his current works in progress.
Brice Garrett uses the position of adornment as a source to think through ideas of body, production, labor, value, and memory. Working across disciplines, he utilizes a variety of materials and methods that culminate into wearables, sculptures, installations, and participatory projects. Brice received his MFA from Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, Sweden and a BA from San Diego State University. He has been the recipient of awards and residencies from the Museum of Arts and Design, Queens Council on the Arts, The Center for Craft, Manhattan Graphic Center, Tides Institute & Museum of Art and most recently Teton ArtLab. His work has been exhibited across Europe and the United States. He currently teaches jewelry and metal fabrication at Westchester Community College, the 92nd Street Y, and Brooklyn Metal Works.
