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 35-foot tall banner, artifacts from a defunct Hawaiian hotel co-owned by Ho’s grandfather, and signage mimicking the hotel’s grand entrance, grapples with reverse diasporic aspirations, and, particularly, the affective shift from being a part of an ethnic minority in the United States to rejoining the Han majority.

Over the last fifty years, Cuban artist Manuel Mendive has developed a sophisticated and pointed examination of the influence of African oral-based traditions on Cuba through the experimental lens of contemporary art. His multidisciplinary work, in particular performances, has become a vehicle for exploring the intersections between art, religion, philosophy, politics, ethics, and anthropology. At the Bronx Museum, Mendive will present a new body of works focused on his continued visual interpretation of narratives of Yorùbá-Lucumí culture and wisdom literature, extending to the universal ideas and relationships between humans and nature.

This year’s conference will explore the current wave of women’s empowerment and how it’s been historically reflected in artistic narrative - literature, media, visual art. We will specifically explore the #MeToo movement and how women such as bell hooks, Tarana Burke, and the founders of Black Lives Matter continue to hack at patriarchy.
