Boleros will present artwork by emerging artists responding to this music genre (Spanish love-themed songs) from the 30’s & 40’s that originated in Cuba & Mexico, that are inspired in love/loss and gender relationships. Participating artists include Blanka Amezkua, Patricia Cazorla, Esperanza Cortes, Elsa Maria Melendez, and Rafael Melendez, who will challenge & revisit dynamics of love, sex, gender and relationship stereotypes of classic “bolero” songs that examine these themes.  Public programs will include gallery talks and the active participation of visitors and the community contributing to our playlist.



Dates: September 18 through Dec. 6, 2017

Guest Curators: April De Simone and Brendan Crooks

Longwood Arts Project is the contemporary art center of the Bronx Council on the Arts with the mission to support artists and their work, especially emerging artists and those from under-represented groups such as people of color and women. 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. 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.
