En Foco, Bronx Council on the Arts and Longwood Arts Project are excited to present New Works #16, an exhibition of En Foco's 2012-2013 New Works Photography Fellowship Awardees featuring Mercedes Dorame, Yujin Liao, Daniel Ballesteros, Jared Soares and Rodrigo Valenzuela, who were selected by guest juror Natasha Egan, Director of the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago.
Each artist's work is unique in form; Liao explores the roles of sex and power in a heterosexual relationship while Dorame dissects ceremonial spaces and cultural memory of what was once her ancestor's land. Ballesteros work is about the search for identity without the aid of histories and the need for self-invention where assimilation has effectively erased cultural influences. Soares work documents hip hop in small towns in Virginia and North Carolina while Valenzuela digitally builds each photograph, generating the illusion of seamless landscapes that evoke a sense of loneliness.
En Foco's New Works Photography Fellowship Awards is an annual program selecting several U.S.-based photographers of Latino, African or Asian heritage and Native Peoples of the Americas and Pacific, through a free, national call for entries. New Works #17 is now open for call for entries, with a deadline of June 30th, 2013. For more information on the New Works Photography Fellowship Awards and how to apply, please visit www.enfoco.org.

Longwood Arts Project hosts exhibits and programs such as Digital Matrix and public programs that provide opportunities for free and open dialogue on arts and culture.
Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos presents solo and group exhibitions of art produced in various media and through interdisciplinary practices that connect artists, communities, and ideas within and beyond the Bronx.
