ABOUT THE ARTIST
Brandon Breaux is a multidisciplinary Contemporary American Artist based in Chicago, IL. His work focuses on identity and how perspective alters reality. With the overall goal to make the material divine and the divine material, Breaux uses type, image, form and sampling to construct narratives that articulate his point of view.
Rebuild Foundation is a platform for art, cultural development, and neighborhood transformation. Our projects support artists and strengthen communities by providing free arts programming, creating new cultural amenities, and developing affordable housing, studio, and live-work space.
Our mission is to demonstrate the impact of innovative, ambitious and entrepreneurial arts and cultural initiatives. Our work is informed by three core values: black people matter, black spaces matter, and black objects matter.
We leverage the power and potential of communities, buildings, and objects that others have written off.
Founded and led by artist Theaster Gates, Rebuild is part of a network of sister organizations that collaborate to extend the social engagement of Gates’ studio practice to the South Side of Chicago and beyond.
