The Bronx Museum of the Arts is a gem of the Bronx with its dynamic programs and exhibits, and this Fall they have two innovative and poignant exhibits: Urban Archives: The Rituals of Chaos and Bronx Lab: Style Wars that will be up into 2013.
In The Urban Archives: The Rituals of Chaos, with Guest Curator Monica Espinel, the exhibition showcases the happenings and feelings of a metropolis in photography and video-based works. You view and hear a variety of themes which include fear, chaos, desolation, and isolation. It also moves you to feel and connect with your own experience with the metropolis, and in doing so allows you to reflect. (July 12, 2012 – January 6, 2013)
Bronx Lab: Style Wars propels audiences to engage in conversation. Using social media and other methods, the exhibit is a hands-on experience with audiences encouraged to interact and detail their views of the exhibit itself. In its first iteration, the Lab draws from the permanent collection to showcase what was happening during the explosion of graffiti art in the South Bronx in the 1970s. A variety of top names in graffiti art are included in the exhibit: Tim Rollins and KOS, Lady K. Fever, and Keith Harring and William Burroughs (a gem and rarely shown in its entirety, must-see).
