ABIGAIL DEVILLE: BRONX HEAVENS

 

RSVP for the Opening Reception

Wednesday, October 12, 6-8pm HERE

 

Spanning over a decade of work, Abigail DeVille: Bronx Heavens examines the myths and realities of local, familial and ancestral histories and the convoluted notion of freedom. This survey features DeVille’s rarely exhibited earlier works as well as new large-scale immersive installations and sculptures that transform the galleries into a cosmic space—taking us on a journey from the ancient past to an imagined future. The Bronx has served as a sanctuary for immigrant and migrant communities, including for the artist and several generations of her family who have lived in the area and were part of the Great Migration. DeVille’s work unearths forgotten narratives of communities of color and explores issues of identity, culture, and class.
