State Property A three-venue exhibition between Andrew Freedman Home, BronxArtSpace and Swing Space, STATE PROPERTY is a multi-disciplinary examination of American consumerism of prison labor and our daily choices to purchase, condone or reject goods created in penitentiaries.  The exhibition asks guests to consider more carefully what “Made in the U.S.A” currently means in relation to the incarceration system, corporate outsourcing, and public consumerism. Currency and choice (or lack thereof) are the springboards towards a much deeper dialogue that recognizes these present injustices.

FROM REFUSE TO PORTRAITURE

6:00pm - 8:00pm

Pinto’s artwork is poignantly aggressive and projects a revolutionary declaration. The scope of his art covers abstract painting, tile work, wood work, stencil spray, the use of non-biodegradable plastic and glass. Most of Pinto’s media comes from salvaged material and found objects. Pinto’s use of plastic is unique and pulsates with hidden significance.
For his show at AAA3A New-York- based Guatemalan artist Juan Carlos Pinto will display a series of vibrant mosaic portraits of cultural icons and local heroes; created using discarded and recycled MTA metro cards.
