Michele Brody has been working with BRAC since 2010. She received her BA from Sarah Lawrence College in 1989 and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1994. Utilizing her strong background in the liberal arts, Michele creates site-specific, mixed-media installations and works of public art that are generated by the history, culture, environment, and architecture of a wide range of exhibition spaces. While living and working in such places as France, Costa Rica, California, the Midwest, Germany, and her home of New York, her art career has developed into a process of working in collaboration with each new community as a means towards developing an interpretation of the sense of a place as an outsider looking in. Michele has recently had exhibitions of her work at The Bronx Museum of the Arts and the Julio Valdez Project Space in Harlem, and she also recently worked as as an artist in residence at the Wave Hill Winter Workspace.

David Cavaliero's work investigates how external referents can inform one’s sense of self. This series began by strategically manipulating mirrors to explore the dominant role a viewer's perspective plays in forming self-awareness and identity. With surfaces interrupted by text, symbols, or material obfuscation, mirrors prompt an inquiry of the border between reality and illusion, flatness and volume, and the way we mentally document space and self-perception. The revelation of the mirror-object’s malleability exposes the mind’s capacity to present a mental and physical self-identity as informed by something outside of the self.

Lili Chin is an artist based in New York City. Combining installation, video and sculpture, her practice focuses on nature and architecture to explore rituals in time, bridging contemporary and ancient ideas that investigate themes of memory, duration and spirituality. Having grown up in the Pacific Northwest USA and Singapore, her diverse background shapes her ephemeral impression of the world through raw materials and film to reveal a fragile search for the quotidian sublime.

Maya Ciarrocchi is a Canadian-American artist whose work excavates vanished and inaccessible histories, themes embedded in her Ashkenazi ancestry and Queer identity. Her previous career as a dancer/choreographer and theatrical designer allowed her to work across disciplines, from site-specific performance to large-scale projections in traditional and experimental theatrical venues. These past experiences inform Ciarrocchi's post-disciplinary studio practice, which includes mixed-media, alternative-process photography, video, and movement-based performance. By combining personal and historical narratives with spatial and embodied mapping, Ciarrocchi uncovers buried pasts and highlights how these erasures are felt in the present. The resulting two-dimensional, time-based, and performative investigations construct new, fantastical spaces from the residue of loss.

Sculptor and art educator Aurelio del Muro began making stone carvings in 1984 with Tom Doyle in Queens College and Philip Pavia in 1989 at the Art Students League of New York. His sculpture shows have been in 1994 at the Mexican consulate in New York, in 2006 at the Art Student's League of New York, and in 2009 at the Petit Versailles Garden in the East Village. In 2012 he showed drawings based on the photographs and life of Paul Strand in Coqu’ Mexicano in the South Bronx. He is a Teaching Artist and a Musician and has been working in Public schools and art organizations in New York City for several years.

Mieyoshi Ragernoir is a Harlem-born painter and mixed-media installation artist. Mieyoshi creates celebratory paintings archiving the connections of people, heritage, and joy; predominantly portraits highlighting the radiance of Black femininity. Beyond capturing the vibrant essence of Black femininity, Ragernoir's work serves to illuminate her visual commentary and social lens on Black American history and how it presents itself in contemporary society. As a Harlem native who grew up in the West Bronx, the vibrant styles, languages, and essence of both communities heavily influence and shape Ragernoir's artwork. In 2022, Mieyoshi Ragernoir received her MFA in Michigan, building upon her BFA in Painting earned from Pratt Institute in 2019.

Professional artist studios in BRAC's recently renovated building will soon be available for up to two year residencies, on a year to year basis, for artists working in various visual art disciplines including: painting, photography, sculpture, video, installation and new media.  Selected artist will have the opportunity to produce new work and make use of BRAC’s extensive resources in support of their creative practices.

BRAC's non-living studios are accessible Monday to Friday, 10am to 10pm, and on weekends from 10am to 6pm. Each open plan studio has a window or windows, vary in size from 250 to 400 sq ft. and range in price from $425 -$650.

Artists will be selected based on their portfolio of work, statement of intent, and an expressed interest to work within the Bronx community. Applicants will be reviewed by a diverse independent selection panel composed of artists, curators, and arts professionals. The program is seeking artists with a developed studio practice, and who are not enrolled in a college or university degree-granting program. BRAC does not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, age, or sexual orientation.
