Athena LaTocha and BRIC

Athena LaTocha’s practice is rooted in her native heritage; it involves abandoning manufactured materials rooted in Western culture in favor of paint brushes made from branches or shredded tires, and pigments devised from organic substances. As an Indigenous American artist, LaTocha’s work challenges Western art-making conventions. A major new work presented by BRIC will consist of a monumental (50-foot long) ink-wash on paper, sheet-lead sculptures, and projected videos. This immersive installation will deepen visitors’ understandings of the layered histories of place using geography as a metaphor.
