A Nexus for Arts and Music

THE BRICKS NYC, A Nexus for Arts and Music is an artist-based community group launched in the fall of 2021 following several artistic activities in arts and music collaboration exhibitions hosted by the Tokyo University of the Arts (GEIDAI) New York Alumni Association since 2017. THE BRICKS NYC is now formed by GEIDAI alumni and diligent musicians and artists based in New York City.


The name "BRICKS” was inspired by red buildings built on the grounds of our alma mater in Ueno, Tokyo in the early Meiji era, commonly known as "Aka-renga”. Those buildings have seen generations of talented artists go by and the history filled bricks of the Blue Building reminded us of a time when our community was filled with diverse musicians and artists.


We believe that the brick wall is a true embodiment of an ideal supportive community. Each brick is unique and can be seen as a representation of an artist and their voice,  and while preserving individuality, the bricks pile together to form one cohesive group relying upon and building off of each other. No matter the generation, we hope to continue to build our legacy together. We will always strive to build and diversify our society through our unique backgrounds and artistic engagements.
