¡Presente! Young Lords in NY + Bronx Calling: The Third AIM Biennial


Dear friends and colleagues,

I'm happy to share upcoming projects at The Bronx Museum of the Arts.
It would be great to see you! Please mark your calendars:
¡Presente! The Young Lords in New York
Bronx Calling: The Third AIM Biennial

Opening reception
Wednesday July 15, 6:00pm to 9:00pm
My installation Vine pa' echar candela, an artistic reinterpretation inspired by the Bronx office of the Young Lords (pictured below) in collaboration with curator Johanna Fernández is part of the exhibition: ¡Presente! The Young Lords in New York
July 2 to October 15, 2015
Organized by guest curators Johanna Fernández and Yasmín Ramírez, ¡Presente! The Young Lords in New York is the first museum survey to examine the radical social group founded by Puerto Rican youth in New York and Chicago in the 1960s. The exhibition examines the thematic, aesthetic, ideological, and historical parallels between the activities of The Young Lords and contemporary artists to demonstrate the organization’s resonance within American art. This exhibition is presented as a collaboration between The Bronx Museum of the Arts, El Museo del Barrio and Loisaida Center.

Bronx Calling: The Third AIM Biennial

Artist Laura Napier and I have co-curated Bronx Calling: The Third AIM Biennial featuring the work of seventy-two emerging artists engaged in the Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) Program (classes of 2014 and 2015). AIM provides professional development opportunities for emerging artists residing and working in the New York metropolitan area. The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalog.
