Break It! Build It!

July 25, 2014 - September 13, 2014

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