Brainard Carey was born in Manhattan, New York, and grew up in
Yonkers. After attending undergraduate art school at SUNY Purchase,
he moved to Rhode Island and opened a gallery and began publishing a literary magazine. Carey then moved back to New York City, where he met Delia Bajo, and cofounded Praxis, which was invited to be in the Whitney Biennial in 2002 and to be in a solo show there in 2007,
as well as other venues around the world. Carey also has a mentoring/
educational business that helps artists to write grants, exhibit, and advance their careers. He splits his time between New York City and a studio in New Haven, Connecticut, where he has a radio show on Yale radio WYBC called The Art World Demystified.
Delia Carey is a conceptual artist whose work has been displayed at the Whitney Biennial in 2002 and again in 2007, at MoMA PS1, and the Reina Sofia. She and husband Brainard Carey have worked on numerous projects through their collaborative
Praxis and are based in New Haven, Connecticut.
