Bronx:Africa Exhibit Planned By Bronx Council On The Arts


The Bronx Council on the Arts’ Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos College invites artists across all disciplines to submit work samples or proposals for its upcoming BRONX:AFRICA exhibition opening February 2016.

Bronx Africa_BCA Art Exhibit 022016The BRONX:AFRICA exhibit will feature contemporary art across disciplines along with special events throughout the Bronx. The borough is home to major and still-growing populations from across Africa. Their vital presence influences and transforms our borough and the city.

BRONX:AFRICA is a multi-disciplinary and multimodal exploration of the art, expressions and influences of African cultures, and their impact as nationals mix and infuse.

BRONX:AFRICA will explore and celebrate the influence of contemporary African cultures in the Bronx and reinforce connections among the many peoples across the African diaspora that call the Bronx home.

This call is open to artists from all five boroughs. However, priority will be given to artists from the Bronx.

Artists are required to upload a resume and/or bio along with the BCA application, along with up to 10 work samples. For installations and performance-based work – a description of the piece(s), visuals or footage, web links, budget and any special needs must be included in your submission.

The deadline to submit is Monday, September 14, 2015.

Selected artists will be contacted by the exhibition staff. Please do not submit original art. Work will not be returned.

Visit the BCA website for information as it evolves.
