Love Thy Neighbor is the third and final part of The Neighbors, an exhibition series guest curated by Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy for The Bronx Museum of the Arts. In this third iteration of the series, “the neighbor” is characterized as the figure of the “Other,” that is, an entity viewed as distinctly foreign from the community, but who ultimately plays a role in the group. By centering on the representation of cultural difference, Love Thy Neighbor is meant to be an occasion for considering alterity, for how diversity sensibly builds society. The exhibition features new work by visual artists Firelei Baez, Ignacio González-Lang, and Irvin Morazan, with the intent of exploring the cultural processes of “othering.”

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.

Friday, April 14th, 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Explore the universal, art languages of geometry and color with Bronx artist Roy Secord.  Through an exploration of geometric, art expressions found in many, diverse cultures (the Eastern Mandala, Gothic Rose Windows, Native American art, African textile design and traditional Islamic art), along with simplified, color techniques, participants will create dynamic and colorful, one-of-a-kind works of art in collage technique. This class is open to beginner to advanced artists.

 

Roy Secord is a 21-Century Modernist, who creates large-scale paintings and sculptures for the public art sector that are ultra-modern, hard-edged, and distilled to abstraction. “I draw from a continuum:”, says Secord, “a thread of universal communication and statement winding through ancestral cultures to future, technological societies. Geometry, color, and line are my language. My art (paintings and sculptures) are abstract narratives on beauty and dynamic orders that shift, change, and mutate.”
