Three Photographers from the Bronx showcases work by three Bronx-born photographers who captured significant moments of societal and urban change in the borough and across the country during a period marked by important social, cultural and political transformations. The exhibition features over 80 works, from depictions of daily life in the Bronx and Far Rockaways in the early 1950s, to images of the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s, to a searing look at Bronx community protests in the early 1980s. Together these works create an exchange across three distinct and intertwined moments, exploring the legacy of community activism and urban change and launching a dialogue surrounding the challenges the Bronx and similar communities continue to face today.

Escape Route: Paintings and Drawings by Jeffrey Spencer Hargrave will present a selection of works by the New York based artist created from 2011 to 2014 that deal with issues related to race, religion and sexuality. Since 1998 Hargrave has produced a compelling, deeply personal body of work incorporating painting, drawing, sculpture and video that explore the dynamics between race, sexuality and religion in relation to his upbringing in the south and early adulthood as an African American gay male coming to terms with racial and sexual identity.

from the Arachnae Series by Aristides Logothetis

Craft And Colony: from the Arachnae Series by Aristides Logothetis presents a new large sculpture by New York-based artist Aristides Logothetis created in 2014 that deals with issues related to the many ways visual signs are coded through culture, and then used as support of systems, constructs, and power hierarchies. Since the 1990’s Logothetis has produced a diverse body of work incorporating sculpture, painting, photography, collage, and installation that explore visual perception and its relationship to a reordered, very personal combination of formalism, narrative, process, and metaphor.

Bosco Sodi’s paintings and sculptures play with notions of experimentation and material spontaneity. In his latest installation, Sodi utilized the remains of sculptures damaged during Hurricane Sandy as a foundation to create new, durable artworks that could transcend the limits of time. The waterlogged remnants were clumped onto a circular base, creating a cluster of stalagmite shapes over a period of time, which were then cast in bronze. For Sodi, the physical process involved a balance of chance and minimal control, where the “goal is to find the accident that is achieved when many variables are involved.”
