8. THE BUFFALO INSTITUTE FOR CONTEMPORARY ART
(NANDO ALVAREZ-PEREZ + EMILY EBBA REYNOLDS)
A classroom within a classroom. Installed with photographic and sculptural work, as well as significant educational mentors from the artists' own high school, this room functions as a space for thinking about history, education, and the ways in which the lessons of the past seem constantly to have to be learned and relearned in the present day.
The Buffalo Institute for Contemporary Art (BICA) is a new arts and education project formed by Nando Alvarez-Perez and Emily Ebba Reynolds, with a mission to break down barriers between the art world and the rest of the world. They will open their first gallery space JANUARY 2019 on Elmwood Ave in Buffalo.
