Inspired by the boundless humanism in Walt Whitman’s poem “Crossing Brooklyn Ferry,” Susannah Ray has developed a new series of photographs on the waterways of New York City. In his poem, Whitman calls out to the tides, the gulls, the ferry passengers, the light, the clouds, the ships, the sailors, the waves, the cities on the far shore. In his eyes, all humans are divine, their reflected faces anointed by “fine spokes of light” in the passing waters. At the Bronx Museum, Ray will present a selection of images captured specifically in the Bronx.

The work of Bronx native Rochelle Feinstein is deeply informed by abstraction, while also conveying a keen sensibility to contemporary culture, particularly to our everyday use of language. Over the span of the last four decades, Feinstein has probed the relevance of the abstract painting tradition vis-a-vis a rapidly changing cultural environment. She has used the lexicon of abstract painting to approach subjects of both personal and social import such as the televised police pursuit of OJ Simpson (El Bronco, 1994); the Iraq war (Hotspots, 2003 - ongoing), and the economic downturn of 2008 (The Estate of Rochelle F., 2010)

Over the last fifty years, Cuban artist Manuel Mendive has developed a highly personal examination of the African spiritual tradition of Yoruba through the experimental lens of contemporary art. The artist’s multidisciplinary work, in particular his performances, has become a vehicle for exploring the intersections between art, religion, philosophy, ethics, and anthropology. At the Bronx Museum, Mendive will present a new body of works focused on his continued interest in Yoruba mythology, pondering on man’s relationship with nature and spirituality. Conceptualized as a cohesive group of paintings and sculptures, the overall installation suggests an “ancestral tour” to the heart of nature. Steeped in religious and philosophical ideas, Mendive’s artworks invite the viewer to immerse in a mythical search for identity. The exhibition will also feature a new performance in September 2017 created by Mendive specifically for the Bronx Museum.

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. Set against the terrace walls and surrounding the composited sculptures, the now empty forms of the template panels are reclassified and labelled with the underlying socio-political reasons behind the mass migrations.
