Self-Organize / Auto-Organizar looks at work that challenges and reimagines the physical, emotional, and geographical boundaries of identity. These artists investigate the construction and destruction of identity, of what constitutes being through the use of their body, installations, books, interviews, videos, and paintings. The exhibition asks us to reflect on how, what, and why we are taking matters into our own hands through the works of artists who mobilize, respond, expose, heal, and rebuild together. Often, it is artists that lead efforts to address the needs of their community when the system, the government, and aid fall short.
At the opening reception on Wednesday, November 15, 6-9pm, Proyectos Sabrosos / Sabroso Projects invite visitors to join the Decolonized Republic by registering and receiving a passport with a new visual identity for the post-resistance in Puerto Rico.

A three-venue exhibition between Andrew Freedman Home, BronxArtSpace and Swing Space, STATE PROPERTY is a multidisciplinary examination of American consumerism of prison labor and our daily choices to purchase, condone or reject goods created in penitentiaries. The exhibition asks guests to consider more carefully what “Made in the U.S.A” currently means in relation to the incarceration system and corporate outsourcing. Currency and choice (or lack thereof) are the springboards towards a much deeper dialogue that recognizes these present injustices. Read the full press release.
