October 3 - December 5, 2018


Exhibition Runs: October 3 - December 5

Six Bronx artists envision alternate futures through collaborative installations that provocatively and poetically challenge their audiences. Each project simultaneously draws on rich and varied art, activist, and cultural histories to search for something beyond itself - whether in relation to economies of generosity and exchange, practical information about immigration rights, or complex conversations about cultural heritage.

                                               Participating Artists:

                        Alicia Grullon, Blanka Amezkua, Fran Ilich

              Francheska Alcantara, Walter Cruz, Yelaine Rodriguez


                               Curator: Amanda McDonald Crowley


                                                 Public Programs:

                                Diego de la Vega Coffee Coop Activations

Longwood Arts Project is the Bronx Council on the Arts’ contemporary visual art center supporting artists and their work, especially those from underrepresented groups such as women, the LGBT community and artists of color through exhibitions and public programming.

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.

Longwood's Project Room was created in 1991 to focus on Bronx and Bronx-based artists who present solo and experimental projects that aim to address issues of politics of identity, class, gender and urban and popular culture.
