Wild Noise/Ruido Salvaje is an exploration of contemporary Cuban art from the 1970s to the present that looks at how Cuban artists both on the island and abroad have grappled with issues of identity, community, and the urban experience. Bringing together over 60 works by more than 30 artists from the Bronx Museum collection and other U.S. institutions and private collections, the exhibition will feature many artworks that will be publicly exhibited for the first time.

Love Thy Neighbor is the third and final part of The Neighbors, an exhibition series guest curated by Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy for The Bronx Museum of the Arts. In this third iteration of the series, “the neighbor” is characterized as the figure of the “Other,” that is, an entity viewed as distinctly foreign from the community, but who ultimately plays a role in the group. By centering on the representation of cultural difference, Love Thy Neighbor is meant to be an occasion for considering alterity, for how diversity sensibly builds society. The exhibition features new work by visual artists Firelei Baez, Ignacio González-Lang, and Irvin Morazan, with the intent of exploring the cultural processes of “othering.”

The seven-part painting Reflecting on the Familiar is Hauben’s attempt at capturing the sense of envelopment, enormity, and often, of the incomprehension that comes with living in the congested urban environment of The Bronx. Rather than depicting just a small portion of his expansive view, Hauben enlarges the scale to create a multi-faceted vision of the world around him.

At the Bronx Museum’s Terrace, Arlene Slavin will present a group of sculptures from Intersections, a series that plays off the principle of the sundial. In these works, Slavin employs crisscrossed, translucent colored webs which remain stable, while the shadow created by the works is in perpetual change. In addition to the works on the Terrace, Slavin will also create a site-specific installation with colored films on the windows in the Museum’s Second Floor, producing a modern riff on stained glass.
