Objects and Extensions (Bronx Museum of the Arts)
"Objects and Extensions" explores the structure of the body in contrast to the structure of a given building (in this case the unique architectural design of the Bronx Museum of the Arts).

Bronx Calling features work by New York-area emerging artists who have participated in The Bronx Museum of the Arts' Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program in the last two years. Organized by Gabriel de Guzman, Wave Hill Curator of Visual Arts; Elizabeth M. Grady, guest curator; and Lia Zaaloff, Bronx Museum Curator, the exhibition is presented concurrently at The Bronx Museum, Wave Hill and 1285 Avenue of the Americas Art Gallery.

 

First Fridays! are made possible with support from The David Rockefeller Fund.  Generous support for Community and Outreach programs is provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Booth Ferris Foundation.
