The BRONX:AFRICA exhibit (#BronxAfrica) will feature contemporary art across disciplines along with Program Ambassador events around the Bronx and beyond.
Our borough is home to major and still growing populations from various countries in Africa. Their vital presence influences and transforms our city. BRONX:AFRICA is a multi-disciplinary exploration of the art, expressions and influences of African cultures, and their impact on the arts as nationals mix and infuse. BRONX:AFRICA celebrates the influence of contemporary African cultures that strengthens and connects us with the many peoples of African descent, the diaspora, mixed heritage and migration-dispersion that call the Bronx home.
