BX200 Exhibit BRONX NOW Brings the Best of the Bronx to Brooklyn: John Ahearn, Tats Cru, Eric Orr, Crash, Andre Trenier, Mrs and More
May 3, 2016
Splendidly curated by Laura James and Eileen Walsh, Bronx Now showcases a wide range of artworks in different media by some of the best artists working in the Bronx.
Bronx Now, an exhibit that features a curated selection of 30 artists, is their first interborough class trip and serves as a marker in the development of the unified Bronx arts scene. The temporary transference from the BX to Bushwick will reinforce that no scene or movement can be wholly realized by remaining insular. Movements are actively nurtured by accessing a variety of ideas and modalities. The artists featured in Bronx Now are here because they know that art is borderless. Artists seek inputs that replenish creativity and energy, wherever they are.
