The Bronx is both a place and a collection of metaphors, a peninsula attached to the mainland in a city of islands. In many ways, it is defined by its diversities—social, demographic, geographic and temporal. Hospitals, museums, universities, formal gardens, beaches, parks, and historical sites are prominent features of the landscape. Massive public housing developments, neighborhoods of six-story apartment buildings and private homes, and bucolic landscapes surrounding long-standing estates can be found within the borders of the Bronx.

The photographers represented in this exhibit are connected to the Bronx by birth, residency, work, or affinity. Each has a unique history, a particular point of view, and an evolving personal story. Who we are as individuals and as a group is represented in this exhibit. We are creating a photographic archive of the Bronx. The Bronx Photographers Collaborative hopes these images speak to, inform, provoke, and inspire you to join us in documenting, celebrating, and advocating for the borough that means so much to us and has contributed so much to who we are.

Culled from the ongoing series “Jewels from The Hinterland” (2013–present), this exhibition renders verdant alcoves and expansive green spaces throughout New York City, as well as select sites across the United States. Featuring black and brown artists, writers, culture workers, and thinkers positioned centrally in each image, A Collective Utterance offers an exploration into the tender interiors of individuals that constitute the creative communities of a city, through an associative, atmospheric mapping of its outdoor spaces.

Spanning sites such as Riverside Park, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Central Park, Green’s photographs present quiet, quotidian portraits—nuanced compositions that revel in her subjects’ subtle gestures, varied postures, and soft gazes. Documenting a community that is tight-knit yet sprawling in scope, Green’s project deeply engages with the historical and social role of photographic portrait, as a tool deployed to communicate, classify, or reinforce particular notions of subjectivity. Yet “Jewels from the Hinterland” destabilizes such structures, with photographic portraits that are as much a product of the subject’s agency, as they are of Green’s intent to portray their complexity. Through these insistently beautiful photographs, we access a kaleidoscopic consideration of what it means to find solace, comfort, and visibility within a community often relegated to the margins.

A project such as “Jewels from the Hinterland” takes on a particular type of urgency within the context of this sociocultural moment of seemingly interminable crisis, where the imaging of black and brown bodies is often deployed to a particular end. Whether portrayed in a mythical manner or as the sites of structural or physical trauma, black and brown bodies are ever in a state of being performed upon. But here, they are left to be. Collectively, these images attest to the tenderness and the strength, the beauty and the intricacy, that is present if only one were to spend time, and look and listen closely.

A Collective Utterance is organized by Oluremi C. Onabanjo.

Come to Fort Tryon Park and try something new. Join us on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings for one hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises.

For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their workouts, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build.

Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can’t be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost.

All of our fitness programs are free, led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Please check back for rain and weather/air advisory cancels.

Please note: Fitness programs are canceled if the weather is lower than 20 degrees and when there are icy conditions. Saturday morning walks begin at 8:30 a.m.

The Bronx is both a place and a collection of metaphors, a peninsula attached to the mainland in a city of islands. In many ways, it is defined by its diversities—social, demographic, geographic and temporal. Hospitals, museums, universities, formal gardens, beaches, parks, and historical sites are prominent features of the landscape. Massive public housing developments, neighborhoods of six-story apartment buildings and private homes, and bucolic landscapes surrounding long-standing estates can be found within the borders of the Bronx.

The photographers represented in this exhibit are connected to the Bronx by birth, residency, work, or affinity. Each has a unique history, a particular point of view, and an evolving personal story. Who we are as individuals and as a group is represented in this exhibit. We are creating a photographic archive of the Bronx. The Bronx Photographers Collaborative hopes these images speak to, inform, provoke, and inspire you to join us in documenting, celebrating, and advocating for the borough that means so much to us and has contributed so much to who we are.

<![CDATA[Arsenal Gallery Exhibition: A Collective Utterance - Naima Green]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/06/21/arsneal-gallery-opening-reception-a-collective-utterance-naima-green http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2018/06/21/arsneal-gallery-opening-reception-a-collective-utterance-naima-green Date: June 21, 2018

Culled from the ongoing series “Jewels from The Hinterland” (2013–present), this exhibition renders verdant alcoves and expansive green spaces throughout New York City, as well as select sites across the United States. Featuring black and brown artists, writers, culture workers, and thinkers positioned centrally in each image, A Collective Utterance offers an exploration into the tender interiors of individuals that constitute the creative communities of a city, through an associative, atmospheric mapping of its outdoor spaces.

Spanning sites such as Riverside Park, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and Central Park, Green’s photographs present quiet, quotidian portraits—nuanced compositions that revel in her subjects’ subtle gestures, varied postures, and soft gazes. Documenting a community that is tight-knit yet sprawling in scope, Green’s project deeply engages with the historical and social role of photographic portrait, as a tool deployed to communicate, classify, or reinforce particular notions of subjectivity. Yet “Jewels from the Hinterland” destabilizes such structures, with photographic portraits that are as much a product of the subject’s agency, as they are of Green’s intent to portray their complexity. Through these insistently beautiful photographs, we access a kaleidoscopic consideration of what it means to find solace, comfort, and visibility within a community often relegated to the margins.

A project such as “Jewels from the Hinterland” takes on a particular type of urgency within the context of this sociocultural moment of seemingly interminable crisis, where the imaging of black and brown bodies is often deployed to a particular end. Whether portrayed in a mythical manner or as the sites of structural or physical trauma, black and brown bodies are ever in a state of being performed upon. But here, they are left to be. Collectively, these images attest to the tenderness and the strength, the beauty and the intricacy, that is present if only one were to spend time, and look and listen closely.

A Collective Utterance is organized by Oluremi C. Onabanjo.

    Lost Notes From Home – Shot in New York over the course of 5 years, this superimposing video and 16mm filmed vignettes are culled from the theater of the street. Live improvised music challenges teases the visuals so that the two are in spirited conversation. Inspired by the tradition of street photography, this piece allows small quotidian moments to flourish. Mark Street is a New York-based filmmaker whose work has appeared at the Tribeca (five times), Sundance, Rotterdam, New York, London, San Francisco, New York Underground, Sarajevo, Viennale, Ourense (Spain), Mill Valley, South by Southwest, and other film festivals.

On stage, we feature youth performances from 696 Build Queensbridge, and Secret Society Dance Company choreographed by Traequan Middleton representing Astoria Houses’ HANAC Cornerstone. Afterwards, catch Queens native and vocal artist/performer STEFA*’s powerful sonic layering and vocal improvisations, followed by an all women drum ensemble Batalá New York’s high-energy Afro-Brazilian rhythms. At sunset, gather around the hill for Urban Shaman Mama Donna’s annual waterfront Solstice ritual uniting all in reverence and positive energy.

6:30pm - 7:30pm: Mike Acerbo

American singer songwriter Mike Acerbo was born in the Bronx, NY and raised in the hamlet of Pearl River, NY. After moving back to New York City in the spring of 1996, Acerbo met Geoffrey Kiorpes (pianist, composer, arranger) and Leah Coloff (cellist, composer, arranger), who helped him formulate his raw talent into a more cohesive sound and fully realize the vision he had for his music. Acerbo’s influences are broad – ranging from Fleetwood Mac and Joni Mitchell to the alternative sounds of Kate Bush and Sufjan Stevens. His songs are personal, poetic and poignant representing the artist's perspective on relationships, loss, and the struggle to find one's self. He is currently in the process of recording his follow up record entitled, "Your Dark Place."
