From November 10, 2021, to March 20, 2022, the Bronx Museum presents Bronx Calling: The Fifth AIM Biennial showcasing the work of 68 early career artists from the 2018 and 2019 cycles of the Bronx Museum’s AIM Fellowship program. Co-organized by Ian Cofre (Director, PS 122 Gallery) and Eva Mayhabal Davis (Co-Director, Transmitter), the fifth edition of Bronx Calling considers the multiple crises of health, grief, the environment, and identity that define our contemporary moment.
Since 1980, the Bronx Museum’s AIM Fellowship has engaged two generations of artists by offering access to robust career management resources. Selected artists are provided insight into the mechanics of the art world through a comprehensive curriculum addressing the practicalities of sustaining a creative career. AIM Fellows gain candid and in-depth guidance from leading industry insiders on topics such as legal issues in art, effective communication strategies, building competitive funding proposals, and planning for healthy financial futures to help early career artists navigate the complexities of the contemporary art market. Since its founding, the AIM Fellowship has provided pivotal career support to a diverse roster of over 1,200 of New York's most promising artists.
