About the Bruce High Quality Foundation:
The Bruce High Quality Foundation creates installations, videos, paintings, sculptures, performances, and institutions that reveal our collective creative agency within the seemingly monolithic forces of art and social history. In 2009 The Foundation founded BHQFU, an experimental art school in downtown Manhattan. In 2010 the Foundation was included in The Whitney Biennial while simultaneously hosting the Brucennial 2010. Recent projects include “The Retrospective 2010” at Galerie Bruno Bischofberger in Zurich, “Argumenta” at the 2011 Venice Biennale; “Teach 4 Amerika,” a national arts education tour; and the Brucennial 2012. In June of 2012 the Foundation will open a solo exhibition at New York’s Lever House.
