Family, in all of its beautiful forms, stands as a cornerstone of the human experience, creating intersections between past, present, and future, simultaneously weaving larger connections in the community. During August and September 2018, David Flores offered free family portraiture in Railroad Park and the greater Morrisania neighborhood with on-site photography, printing, display, and digital sharing. This project is a response to recent nationalist movements that have attempted to remove and erase familial representations of immigrants and people of color. Parents, children, elders, extended family and friends all participated in the making of formal images and left with a large format print of themselves free of charge.
This project is a collaboration with ArtBuilt, Queens Museum, DreamYard, WHEDco, Bronx Defenders and NYC Parks.
This exhibition is an extension of ArtBuilt Mobile Studio in the Park, made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts, Surdna Foundation, and The New York Community Trust. Additional support is provided by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
David Flores' Nueva Bronx is on view at the Arsenal Gallery on weekdays on June 13 through August 30. Closed on the Fourth of July.
