Artist in Residence: Brice Garrett – Object Stories
September 18 - September 29
Bethany Arts Community welcomes Brice Garrett for his first residency with us. Brice is using his residency to develop ideas of community and participatory artworks. He will be developing “Object Stories” which is a community-sourced art project that documents people’s relationships to personal objects that shape our everyday lives.
Call for Participation – seeking submissions to build this project.
Participants are asked to think about the meaningful possessions that surround them and submit images and the stories behind them. For Example, I’m seeking objects and stories that represent the idea of home, a particular place, associated to a specific person, provide comfort and/or are extensions of our bodies and routines.
It’s quick and simple – Please email a picture of your object and a short written text, voice recording, or video – whatever is easier – telling me about it and why you selected it. You can email as many objects / pictures as you want:
As the project evolves, Brice will compile the images and create an anonymous online interactive archive of the images. The submissions become snapshots of our relationships to objects and the significant position they hold within our lives.
Brice Garrett uses the position of adornment and objects 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 sculpture at the 92nd Street Y and Brooklyn Metal Works.
