Sophia Brueckner at Urban Institute For Contemporary Arts

The Jump Off 1600x900 Final

Assistant Professor Sophia Brueckner will be exhibiting a series of works at the Urban Institute For Contemporary Arts in Grand Rapids as part of The Jump Off, on view June 2 — August 262017

UICA celebrates 40 years of experimentation and growth with The Jump Off, a group exhibition that features multiple works by local, regional, and national artists. The artists included in the exhibition reveal the evolution within the creative process by presenting artwork that defines their current practice paired with earlier works — specifically, exposing the piece or pieces that served as the clear turning point; catalyzing the spark for their new work’s materials, visual or conceptual content. 

The Jump Off was curated by UICA’s Exhibitions Curator, Heather Duffy, from a national call for work.

Brueckner’s featured work includes Empathy Box, Empathy Amulet, and her Jump Off” piece, Crying to Dragon Dictate.
