29 Jun ArtBridge Announces PRESENT POWER / FUTURE HOPES, Broadway World
ArtBridge, in partnership with NYC Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA), and New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), presentS PRESENT POWER / FUTURE HOPES, a culminating group exhibition showcasing works from its City Artist Corps: Bridging the Divide installation series that aims to amplify the voices of New York City’s 400,000 public housing residents.
Co-curated by ArtBridge’s Curator and Senior Program Manager Rebecca Pristoop and ArtBridge Board member and artist Manjari Sharma, PRESENT POWER / FUTURE HOPES celebrates 50+ outdoor exhibitions by 59 New York-based artists at 16 NYCHA developments in all five boroughs.
The program was supported by City Artist Corps, initiated in 2021 as a way to invest in and provide relief to artists across the city and to empower them to contribute to New York City’s ongoing recovery. The installations throughout the NYCHA system are also made possible by the City Canvas initiative, which allows construction sheds and fencing to be transformed into platforms for community-driven public artwork.
The exhibition opens on July 8th, 2022 at The Clemente Soto Vélez Cultural & Educational Center with a reception at 5-8 PM ET and will remain on view through July 23rd, 2022.
