Tomorrow, Friday, March 6 from 5:30PM – 9:30PM, you’ll get TWO art openings under one roof as the BxArts Factory launches their first exhibition called ‘Innuendos: The Voices of 10 Bronxite Women‘, and the Andrew Freedman Home Artists in Residence II Annual Art Exhibition featuring 15 artists and their works.
Information on Innuendos is as follows:
An Art Exhibition: Innuendos
in•nu•en•do noun \ˌin-yə-ˈwen-(ˌ)dō, -yü-ˈen-\
a statement which indirectly suggests that someone has done something immoral, improper, etc.
an oblique allusion : hint, insinuation; especially: a veiled or equivocal reflection on character or reputation
This collection of works by ten women artists from The Bronx seeks to connect you to the female form. We wish to celebrate women, body and spirit, through metaphors intended to destroy the stigmatism of women’s bodies and to reflect the elegance of the female form through its closeness to the universe.
Innuendos, is a forum for artists and members of the community to discuss the problems women face in this new age, including how our accomplishments continue to be ignored by many members of our society. The works explore and bring light to how the bodies and spirits of women have been affected or negatively influenced by constant sexualization, commercialization and enslavement. The presentation of these conceptual works is also meant to illustrate the different societal elements that have shaped ideas of the female form in an attempt to incarcerate women’s freedoms and power in a patriarchal society.
The art exhibition will take place just in time for Women’s History Month and is defined by a multimedia collection of works that reflect a variety of styles and representations of women. The show is co-curated by Yelaine Rodriguez and Yolanda L. Rodriguez and produced in part by BxArts Factory
Invited artists: Laura Alvarez , Laura N James, Ijeoma D. Iheanacho, Elena Bouza, Sharon Lee De La Cruz, Yelaine Rodriguez, Melan Dolly, Melissa Calderón, Abigail DeVille and Yarisa Colon Espacio Asiray)
