SHIFTING STREAMS: TWELVE ARTISTS BY THE HUDSON RIVER
This exhibit brought together a group of twelve artists of Cuban origins who live and work on the west bank of the Hudson River. The surrounding waters of their lives shifted from the warm waves of the Caribbean Ocean to the peaceful streams of the Hudson River. Various subjects were discerned within this exhibiton via a variety of mediums and creative processes, such as: the exploration of domestic spaces, communities, dreams, the self.
With the 40th Anniversary of the Longwood Arts Project upon us, Saturn’s Return was the fifth BRIO (Bronx Recognizes Its Own) retrospective featuring the works of twelve, 2017-2020 BRIO visual and media arts winners. Reflecting on aging, change, and growth, Saturn's Return brought audience members to reflect on the self, community, and the world at large to provoke inward evolution.
Radical Elegance featured photographers who subvert the traditional aesthetics of fashion photography, and challenge its elitist practices in the field, as well as the historical, technical, and stylistic approaches that characterize the genre. The photographers did this by taking charge of their narratives, documenting their communities, and shedding light on Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) cultures.
LUCKY TO BE HERE
Utilizing collages, painting, photography, installation art and sculptures, artists in Lucky to Be Here presented archetypes of home as otherworldly, nostalgic, and uncanny in this exhibition that considers the visual language of architecture, furniture forms, family, shelter, mapping, and immigration.
