This exhibition in honor of the late Tim Rollins takes as its departure point the concept of dialog that was central to his vision as an artist and educator. Deeply influenced by the educational theories of Brazilian philosopher Paulo Freire, Rollins used dialog to bring out the truth in each pupil, harmonizing different voices in their varied nuances. Working as a Public School teacher in the South Bronx starting in 1981, his educational approach was pivotal in infusing a sense of pride and belonging among students that often felt alienated from the mainstream. For Rollins, the idea of dialog was also an integral part of his art practice, and we might consider the whole of his collaboration with K.O.S. as a sustained dialog not only among members of the group, but most importantly, with great interlocutors of the past, like W.E.B. DuBois, Martin Luther King, George Orwell, and Franz Kafka to mention but a few.

Landing / Aterrizaje is solo show of Bronx artist Moses Ros’ sculptures on the Bronx Museum’s Sculpture Terrace. The work is inspired by recent migrations to the United States caused by environmental and manmade disasters and catastrophes that have wrenched people away from their homelands. In this series, Ros focuses on the Caribbean experience, creating large, freestanding sculptures based on a main staple and export of the islands, the platano (plantain banana).  Using cut-out, plywood sheets to form a type of DIY “assembly kit” of the work, the large-scale, painted winged forms, along with the post-cut template panels that once held them are juxtaposed within the space.
