Wild Noise/Ruido Salvaje is an exploration of contemporary Cuban art from the 1970s to the present that looks at how Cuban artists both on the island and abroad have grappled with issues of identity, community, and the urban experience. Bringing together over 60 works by more than 30 artists from the Bronx Museum collection and other U.S. institutions and private collections, the exhibition will feature many artworks that will be publicly exhibited for the first time.

The seven-part painting Reflecting on the Familiar is Hauben’s attempt at capturing the sense of envelopment, enormity, and often, of the incomprehension that comes with living in the congested urban environment of The Bronx. Rather than depicting just a small portion of his expansive view, Hauben enlarges the scale to create a multi-faceted vision of the world around him.

At the Bronx Museum’s Terrace, Arlene Slavin will present a group of sculptures from Intersections, a series that plays off the principle of the sundial. In these works, Slavin employs crisscrossed, translucent colored webs which remain stable, while the shadow created by the works is in perpetual change. In addition to the works on the Terrace, Slavin will also create a site-specific installation with colored films on the windows in the Museum’s Second Floor, producing a modern riff on stained glass.

Can photography change how we see our surroundings? What comprises a beautiful photograph? How can photography and history interrelate?

We'll meet on Randall's Island Connector at 2pm to learn about this year's FLOW art pieces, discuss some of Randall's Island's history, and talk about photographic composition and story-telling. Bring your camera or camera phone (RIPA will also offer a few Polaroid cameras to borrow for the event) and spend the afternoon capturing Island images that you can take home with you. We hope you'll return throughout the year to continue your photographic journey on Randall's Island.
