4RTA BIENAL DE ARTE LATINOAMERICANO DEL BRONX: Vanessa Hernández Gracia
Sunday, October 19, 3:30pm to 6:00pm

The Bronx Latin American Art Biennial concludes its series at the Bronx Museum with two muldisciplanry works from artists Vanessa Hernández Gracia and Pablo Caviedes that aim to shift attention from the art objects to the artists' actions, which further suggest that art exists in real space and real time.

 

Free admission

 

 

 

Gracia's "Imaginative trajectory" explores the possibilities of using theoretical and historical references to establish dialogues between the body, the object, the image, the site and the everyday. Her work concerns the body's fragility and ephemeral condition. 

 

Ecuadorian-American artist Caviedes presents his rotating painting "On the Map," a striking image that is powered by an unseen apparatus. Caviedes's piece depicts the "continental" United States as a floating asphalt-bitumen colored Neo-Pop map-shape containing a Warholesque portrait of the USA's 44th president: Mr. Barack Hussein Obama.
