Read the Burlington Free Press article

JULY 25 – SEPTEMBER 13, 2014

Opening Reception Friday July 25, 5-8pm

Taking BCA’s popular summer camp as its point of departure, Break It! Build It! is an exhibition focusing on artists who embody the DIY spirit. Artists in the exhibition break, crush, destroy, and manipulate everyday objects to build, invent, and create their work, still. From altered couches to hacked iPods and installations using raw construction materials, Break It! Build It! will challenge the phrase “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” and examine the ways destruction may be a necessary component of construction.

The exhibition will also feature work by young artists that was created in this summer’s Break It! Build It! camps.

Artists Included : Christopher Abrams, Colin Brahmstedt, John Cohn, Maxwell Cohn, Eric Hall, Beatriz Herrera, Ken Howell, Jenn Karson, Keegan Kuvach, Kristin Rogers
