Today the DAC interns went on a field-trip to BRIC, a non-profit gallery in Brooklyn Heights. The theme of one of their current exhibitions is utopia and it explores many issues such as geo-political conflicts, human rights, urban development, the environment and how we comprehend and utilize physical space. This is especially relevant to us interns because it reminds us of how each of us are from a state, city and country but can still get along. I know it sounds silly, but wouldn't it be much easier if we didn't have any borders at all? The whole world could work together to save our natural resources and care about what is really important. Seeing this exhibition challenged my view of immigration and place which made me appreciate the diverse friends I have made while working at DAC. Today was a joyfull outing. We talked, laughed and had a great lunch after going to the gallery and we all got to know each other a little bit better. The world is much more colorful when you have friends. So let's talk to each other more, laugh, and try to understand our differences, then maybe we can eliminate borders all together. The current exhibit "the no place" is on view through March 6, 2010 at BRIC Contemporary Artat 33 Clinton Street , New York 11201.

Special thanks to Baseera Khan BRIC's Assistant Curator for taking the time to speak to us.
