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 stevie may. Focused particularly on women and non-binary 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 we took a leave of absence from booking shows took a deep breath and waited… when it was clear that inside shows would not be making a comeback in the short term Brackish took our series 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. The Brackish Music and Arts Video Spectacular highlights these performances and aims to bring a little joy from our community of artists to everyone watching out there in the great big digital.
