FOREIGN/FAMILIAR: IMMIGRANTS IN THE BRONX

January 9 - February 27, 2019

 

Exhibition Runs: January 9 - February 27 ( Free Admission)

Foreign/Familiar explores displacement and belonging through the work of seven Bronx visual and media artists. Their works are influenced, inspired, respond to, or revolve around issues of voluntary and involuntary exile, immigration, diaspora, and statelessness. Curated collectively by the Bronx Council on the Arts, the exhibition was generated through an Open Call for Bronx-based artists, and offers alternative narratives to the current public discourses on immigrant and refugee communities.

Dennis Redmoon Darkeem | Nicky Enright | Kitchen Table Digital Diaspora Collective (Kara Lynch and Peggy Piesche) | Tijay Mohammed | Luis Stephenberg Alers | Musah Swallah

Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos, one of NYC’s oldest and longest running progressive alternative spaces, presents solo and group exhibitions in various media, and interdisciplinary projects that connect artists, communities and ideas within and beyond the Bronx.
