In response to the continued failure of the US to protect its Black citizens from police discrimination and violence, BronxArtSpace is inviting artists to submit artwork and proposals for events and performances to be considered for our “Speak Out” exhibition on view from January 20 to February 20, 2016. Selected works and proposals will affirm that Black lives matter, respond to institutional racism that enables law enforcement to kill Black members of our community with impunity, and/or imagine creative solutions and visionary alternatives to a broken justice system.
Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of artists and curators. Artists will receive notifications by January 8. Delivery of artworks and installation will begin January 12. Submission Deadline: January 1, 2016 Midnight EST About BronxArtSpace: BronxArtSpace supports underrepresented and emerging artists and fosters arts education through themed exhibitions and events in Mott Haven in the South Bronx.
BronxArtSpace was founded by Linda Cunningham and Mitsu Hadeishi. Exhibitions are organized in collaboration with a number of artists, filmmakers, and curators from the Bronx and around the world. BronxArtSpace is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization, and is supported in part by public funds from NYC Dept of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with City Council, The New Yankee Stadium Community Benefit Fund and the New York State Council on the Arts.
