As part of Outcasts: Women in the Wilderness, the spring show in Wave Hill's Glyndor Gallery, spoken-word artists and poets perform on the grounds, bringing their voices into the open air. Their work aims to heal and empower by way of inclusiveness, resistance, and recovery from loss and trauma.
Artists Mahogany L. Browne, Natalie N. Caro, Caridad De La Luz, and Jess X will offer their own works, share works by kindred spirit poets and writers, or perform new works that respond to the artwork on view in the gallery. The artists were selected for their unique voices that draw on personal experience and cultural context, with a drive to communicate.
Bronx-based artist and curator Jane Gabriels serves as host for the program. As a champion of cultural production in the Bronx, Gabriels puts the works in context, providing a reference point for these powerful messages. With its strong Bronx focus the program showcases the creativity of our borough and beyond and introduces these visionary artists.
Free with admission to the grounds.
