A new arts and education project in Buffalo, NY.

 

 INTRODUCING

THE BICA MICROGRANT

A $300 good-faith grant for artists and curators who are realizing a project in the greater Buffalo area.

This is no-strings-attached money that an artist or curator can use in whatever way they feel it’s needed.

CURRENT EXHIBITION

LINDSAY PRESTON ZAPPAS

I FORGOT MY SHOES

Zappas’ work as an artist threads between media (sculpture, weaving, photography, and performance), genres (art, craft, and design), and from representation to reality, as rainbow-painted wood, furniture, paper collage, and performers spill from pictorial space into the exhibition space. Whether working with textiles, Photoshop, or paint, the human figure acts as a focal point throughout Zappas’ work, assuming classic art historical manifestations in her photographs but a vulnerable presence in the tapestries’ performative interventions. The work maintains a strong insistence on the artist’s hand and visual language, and alongside a critical edge embraces the joy of making.

OUR MISSION:

To break down the barriers between the art world and the rest of the world, where lives are made better through practical engagements with contemporary art.
