Widely recognized for his large scale paintings that incorporate silkscreens of blown up
drawings, Eddie Martinez has built a consistent body of work over the last decade
successfully merging the tradition of American abstract painting with the energy of the
street. In this new body of work, created especially for this exhibition, Martinez
introduces yet a new element to his process in the guise of whiting out parts of the
composition, a move that represents a significant point in his career.

The work of Bronx native Rochelle Feinstein is deeply informed by abstraction, while also conveying a keen sensibility to contemporary culture, particularly to our everyday use of language. Over the span of the last four decades, Feinstein has probed the relevance of the abstract painting tradition vis-a-vis a rapidly changing cultural environment. She has used the lexicon of abstract painting to approach subjects of both personal and social import such as the televised police pursuit of OJ Simpson (El Bronco, 1994); the Iraq war (Hotspots, 2003 - ongoing), and the economic downturn of 2008 (The Estate of Rochelle F., 2010)

The installation Aloha to the World at the Don Ho Terrace, is an imagined meandering to and from Hong Kong (and possibly back in time) from where Christopher K. Ho emigrated at age four. This solo exhibition, which includes a 38-foot tall banner, artifacts from a defunct hotel co-owned by Ho’s grandfather, and renaming the Bronx Museum’s Terrace after Hawaiian singer Don Ho, grapples with reverse diasporic aspirations, and the affective shift away from being an ethnic minor in the United States and towards rejoining the Han majority.
