Brackish – music + art

Brackish Music & Art is a performance series showcasing live music (improvised/composed), visual art (installation/video/projection), poetry, and movement curated by Angela Morris, jaimie branch, and Starr Busby. Focused particularly on women, queer, and BIPOC artists, it’s the kind of vital low-stakes / high interest environment where people can take risks within a room full of people who are likewise engaged in experimentation. When Covid-19 hit Brackish took to the great outdoors and the vast digital, booking outdoor pop up concerts all over Brooklyn and commissioning video works from some of our favorite artists, all culminating in the Brackish Video Spectacular.
