José Parlá: It’s Yours, organized by guest curator Manon Slome, is a series of new paintings that celebrate Parlá’s roots in the hip-hop energy of the Bronx. The series also addresses the suffering caused by redlining policies, the waves of displacement imposed by gentrification, and structural racism. It’s Yours encourages viewers to question ownership in New York’s rapidly changing neighborhoods.
In this panel, artist José Parlá and curator Manon Slome will discuss the significance of the exhibition in the wake of the pandemic and in the context of shifting conversations and activism today.
