EMILIO SANCHEZ IN THE BRONX
This exhibition presents a group of works by Emilio Sanchez from The Bronx Museum of the Arts Permanent Collection, together with related archival material and a special interpretive project by Bronx-based artist Laura Napier. All the works depict commercial buildings in the Hunts Point area of the South Bronx. With a colorful palette and rigorous architectural design, these works depict the bodegas and auto shops of the Bronx in an almost idyllic style that makes a stark contrast with preconceived views of the borough.
All works by Emilio Sanchez were donated to the Bronx Museum of the Arts Permanent Collection by the Emilio Sanchez Foundation. The Urban Archives Project is made possible with support from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
