This Spring, the BCA will welcome local Somerville artist Edie Bresler, whose practice is based on collaborative, social practices. At the BCA, Bresler seeks to create an alternative financial model for our economy, one that is built on systems of trust and trade-exchange. Throughout Bresler’s residency, she will set up informal, participatory “street studios” in the BCA’s neighborhood where she will engage with passersby to create interactive visual and written portraits. For their participation, “currency” will be exchanged, which can be traded for a portrait at an informal BCA community day. Dates for Bresler’s community days will be posted in the Spring.
