Can photography change how we see our surroundings? What comprises a beautiful photograph? How can photography and history interrelate?


Join RIPA's selected 2017 FLOW artist Rose DeSiano to address these questions, and take some photographs of your own! We'll meet on 103rd Street Footbridge at 2:00pm to learn about this year's FLOW art pieces, discuss some of Randall's Island's history, and talk about photographic composition and story-telling. Bring your camera or camera phone (RIPA will also offer a few Polaroid cameras to borrow for the event) and spend the afternoon capturing Island images that you can take home with you. We hope you'll return throughout the year to continue your photographic journey on Randall's Island. 


Free admission.  All ages welcome! 


The FLOW art series is planned in conjunction with the Randall's Island Park Alliance, the Bronx Museum and the New York Department of Parks and Recreation.

Friday, April 14th, 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Explore the universal, art languages of geometry and color with Bronx artist Roy Secord.  Through an exploration of geometric, art expressions found in many, diverse cultures (the Eastern Mandala, Gothic Rose Windows, Native American art, African textile design and traditional Islamic art), along with simplified, color techniques, participants will create dynamic and colorful, one-of-a-kind works of art in collage technique. This class is open to beginner to advanced artists. Due to space limitations this event is first come, first serve.

 

Roy Secord is a 21-Century Modernist, who creates large-scale paintings and sculptures for the public art sector that are ultra-modern, hard-edged, and distilled to abstraction. “I draw from a continuum:”, says Secord, “a thread of universal communication and statement winding through ancestral cultures to future, technological societies. Geometry, color, and line are my language. My art (paintings and sculptures) are abstract narratives on beauty and dynamic orders that shift, change, and mutate.”

Portadores is a collaborative project between artist Almudena Lobera and architect Isabel Martínez Abascal, exploring the medium of living bodies. The project consists of drawings by Almudena Lobera that are shown and tattooed onto the skin of volunteers by Isabel Martínez Abascal, and then are destroyed so that the only remaining and existing works are those on the skin. The execution of the dibuajes (drawings-tattoos) requires the collaboration of the viewer, who becomes an integral part of the work.  This project aims to call into question the material form of the artwork and to explore social and relational notions.


The Bronx Museum of the Arts will host the performance of Portadores, together with an artist talk and videos from previous presentations.
