BioBAT Artspace


Brooklyn Army Terminal Building A
140 58th Street,
Brooklyn, NY 11220


Saturday 10/16, 12-5 pm
Sunday 10/17, 12-5 pm


BioBAT Art Space is pleased to present two exhibitions: Common Frequencies, an exhibition that brings together the works of Lorena Mal, Marcela Armas, Gilberto Esparza, Tania Candiani, and Interspecifics, and curated by Elisa Gutierrez Eriksen. The work of these Mexican artists meets at the intersection of art and science, and explores the relationship between these two disciplines through sound, urban ecology, language, and the construction of collective imageries. The artists—working across performance, installation, photography, sound, and drawing—are inspired by resonance, mechanics, electricity, and magnetism and take these phenomena as the basis for the invention of mechanisms that give voice to nature.

Impending Beauty, a solo exhibition by Tatiana Arocha at BioBAT Art Space Project Space, that transports viewers into a tea room that recalls early 19th Century European opulence, yet every surface bears images of an all-engulfing rainforest. The installation interrogates man’s instruments of aggression as well as those luxurious, ‘civilized’ artifacts and furnishings that hold so much material value but exist purely as a result of the heedless ransacking of natural resources. Within this room nature prevails, the flora and fauna recolonizing their sacred spaces.Concert: “Household Requiem”

Performances on Sunday 10/17 at 3 pm and 4pm 
Household Requiem is a collaboration between Mexican artists Tania Candiani and composer Rogelio Sosa with the Grace Chorale Brooklyn, to be presented in the framework of the Common Frequencies Exhibition at BioBAT Art Space in Brooklyn. The presented piece was composed in response to the pandemic, and the lives that have been lost since 2020. It brings together the inner and external sounds of the lockdown in a composition about grief and unity.
