Dear Friend of BAX,

The Board and staff of the Brooklyn Arts Exchange have been privileged to work with Paloma McGregor as its first Artistic Director since the departure of BAX’s founding Executive Artistic Director Marya Warshaw in February. However, in the brief time since joining the organization, Paloma has decided to step down as the Board and the Executive Director turn their attention to strengthening BAX’s infrastructure.

As our part-time AD, Paloma has laid important artistic groundwork for the coming season, as well as spearheaded long-term visioning for how BAX can deepen and activate its anti-racist mission. Paloma will work closely with Executive Director Vanessa Adato, the Board and Staff until her September 6th departure in order to ensure a smooth transition. All of BAX’s educational and artistic programs will continue uninterrupted.

The BAX Board of Directors wishes Paloma all the best, with great confidence in her continued artistic leadership and contributions to the field.

Sincerely,
BAX Board of Directors
