‘Through a Feminine Lens’: Bronx Artists of Color
Voices of NY: July 6th, 2018
“Through a Feminine Lens,” an exhibit of photographs and photo-based artworks by seven Bronx women of color, explores how the artists see numerous themes affecting their lives today intersecting and being represented in their art. The exhibit, at the Longwood Art Gallery at Hostos Community College in the Bronx, opened June 27 and will run through Aug. 8, reports Gustavo Huerta in Mott Haven Herald. Juanita Lanzo, the exhibit’s co-curator and the gallery director, arranged the exhibit.
“Being a woman, being a woman working as a photographer, being a woman of color working as a photographer and touching upon religion, spirituality and immigration which is all relatable to today’s politics,” Lanzo said. “It’s also the identity of being an American, being the child of an immigrant, second or third generation and exploring how you define that, especially when you’re a woman of color.”
The artists participating in the exhibit are Gloria Zapata, Adeline Lulo, Melanie Gonzalez, Lisa DuBois, Christa David, Maria Estevez and Ijeoma D. Iheancho.
