Bronx Latin Art Biennial at Poe Park

Bronx Hispanic Festival Inc. is celebrating the 2012 III Bronx Latin American Art Biennial, with a program that included several art exhibitions, throughout the Bronx, which started on September, 2012 until December, 2012.

On Saturday, November 10, 2012 from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm, we will have the opening of the last venue at Edgar Allan Poe Park Visitor Center Gallery 2640 Grand Concourse, Bronx, NY 10458. The title suggests the elucidation of what happens when we stand in front of an art work. Visual appearance of objects is given by the way in which they reflect and transmit light. The other sides of appearance respond to the meaning of symbolic reference constructed as an icon that stands for an object by signifying or representing it either concretely or by analogy. Artists address issues such as, social communication, discrimination and ancestry heritage are showing their works in all genres and mediums representing the Hispanic culture.

Featured artists include Miguel Trelles, Ismael Checo, Ines Tolentino, Leenda Bonilla, Rodolfo Edwards, Miguel Martinez Hector Anchundia, Marina Gutierrez, with video art by Edin Velez, Jesus Algovi and Katya Cazar. The curators are Miguel Lescano, Alexis Mendoza, and Luis Stephenberg.


“Praise the bridge that carried you over.”

(1762 – 1836)
