🚨 ANNOUNCEMENT 🚨 THRILLED to share my next exhibition at the @bronxmuseum - AMERIKA. GOD BLESS YOU IF ITS GOOD TO YOU. a solo exhibition of one of my favorite artists and humans @wardell_milan. On view from 06/23/21- 10/26/21 (performance schedule to follow)

About the Exhibition
Split into two parts, Amerika. God Bless You If It’s Good To You explores the violent undergirding of contemporary American society. The first portion of the exhibition, composed of new works on paper, explores the insidious normalcy of White supremacy in America. At the heart of the exhibition is the question: “What do terrorists do when they’re not terrorizing?” This inquiry pushes the artist’s assertion that racial violence is interwoven into the fabric of American life, and an indiscriminate presence in public and private realms.
By exploring the daily lives of White nationalists, from their morning rituals and social gatherings to their most intimate moments, Milan reveals the banality of hate. As we remain passive observers both within Milan’s portrayals and as witnesses to them, it becomes necessary for us to question our own preconceived morality.

The second section of the show is housed in a site-specific structure and explores the idea of a “Safe Space” for communities that have historically been marginalized. This space, constructed in reference to a chapel, sets the stage for a series of collaborative, newly choreographed performances by Zachary Tye Richardson, and utilizes a series of sculptures designed and fabricated by artist and designer Billy Ray Morgan. Titled 5 Indices on a Tortured Body, the series of performances is split into five acts: The Black Male Body, The Female Body, The Trans Body, The Migrant Body, and the Quarantine Body.

The Bronx Museum is pleased to present an online conversation between “Born in Flames” artists Lizzie Borden and Sin Wai Kin (FKA Victoria Sin), moderated by Jasmine Wahi, Holly Block Social Justice Curator. This discussion will explore the artists’ individual practices, the history of Q***r feminist filmmaking, and their visions for radical futurist visions.

Lizzie Borden is an American filmmaker best known for her 1983 film “Born in Flames.” Her body of work also investigates race, class, power, capitalism, and the power money bestows—all from a feminist vantage point.

Sin Wai Kin (FKA Victoria Sin) is a Canadian visual artist who uses speculative fiction within drag performance, moving image, writing, and print to refigure attitudes towards gender, sexuality, and historical discourses of identity.

Date: Thursday, June 17th at 2 pm on Zoom

“Our Futures In Color,” an online exhibition curated by the Bronx Museum’s Teen Council, on view online through June 26th.

The Teen Council writes: “Over the past year, many dreams were shattered due to the pandemic and hard circumstances in NYC. Time was just paused and colorless, making us tend to envision Our Futures In Color.” This exhibition invited NYC teen artists to bring viewers into the world they dreamed of while in quarantine, whether that be Broadway or an imagined utopia.

Last chance! See “Shaun Leonardo: The Breath of Empty Space” before it closes, Sunday, May 30th!

Presenting drawings by the Brooklyn-based artist that critique how mediated images of systemic violence against Black and Brown young men in contemporary American history have shaped our fear, empathy, and perception. Leonardo encourages a new and nuanced way of looking at the content—and ourselves.

Essential Worker Unmasked, 2020, colored pencil on paper, 15 x 22 in

“The gravest revelation to emerge from Covid-19 in this city is not a revelation at all. Namely, that essential workers are the poor black, brown, and indigenous people who inhabit this city. The first to be displaced and the last to be saved. A grand unmasking during a desperate search for masks. In particular, this drawing points to the tremendous weight carried by delivery persons who have brought nourishment to the doorsteps of New Yorkers across the city and kept businesses in operation during the shutdown, while being the most poorly paid, and working in the harshest conditions. It is an indictment.” - Shellyne Rodriguez

Hillary pauses for a break while painting this 30-foot banner created and unfurled on the Bronx stairs now made famous by the movie Joker.
