The Bronx Council on the Arts' Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos invites artists across all disciplines to submit work samples or proposals for our upcoming BRONX:AFRICA exhibition opening February 2016.
About: The BRONX:AFRICA exhibit will feature contemporary art across disciplines along with special events throughout the Bronx. Our borough is home to major and still-growing populations from across Africa. This vital presence influences and transforms our 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 of African descent, mixed heritage and migration-dispersion that call the Bronx home.
