Her Art Will Be Cannibal

Dates: January 16 through Mar. 7, 2017

Curators: Alicia Grullón

Space: Main Gallery


Her Art Will Be Cannibal, curated by interdisciplinary artist Alicia Grullón, is inspired by the work of the Martinique poet Suzanne Césaire and her book “The Great Camouflage: Writings of Dissent (1941-44).” Artworks in this exhibition break down patriarchy, class, and racial paradigms in contemporary contexts, re-stating and affirming the discourse of art from the view of women. Moving through photography, video, text, performance and drawing, their work serves as a manifesto, uncompromising in beliefs and identities. The exhibit highlights a narrative of humanness seldom given visibility, and allows room for the artists’ visions to take over. Participating artists include: Damali Abrams, Francheska Alcántara, Chloë Bass, Ayana Evans, Jessica Lagunas, Shellyne Rodriguez and Misra Walker. Engaging public programs will include four performances and one panel discussion with participating artists.

Longwood's Project Room was created in 1991 to focus on Bronx and Bronx-based artists who present solo and experimental projects that aim to address issues of politics of identity, class, gender and urban and popular culture.
