Curated by Kiara Ventura, winner of BAS inaugural Curatorial Open Call | Emerging Bronx Voices, FOR US reflects loud unapologetic portraits by 8 young women of color. Artworks speak to the artists' history, lineage, and pressures of daily lived experience. Dedicated to other women of color, the exhibition and its public programs examine how images can drive their process of healing. How can these images on and offline be used to take agency and manifest their future? Featuring sculpture, installation, video, painting, photography and library, the gallery will function as a safe space.
