Confronted with a new national consciousness around racial inequity, two New York City art exhibitions focus on mourning with varying degrees of success.
New York State has lost 32,000 — approximately 50% — of its performing arts jobs in the past year, and “more than 4,400 jobs in museums,” according to Elie Dvorkin of Center for an Urban Future.
A new exhibition recognizes the importance of representation both on the comics page and in the hands of the artists making them.
Opening June 17, the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute’s Liminal Space offers a glimpse of the tensions immigrants face in being tethered to multiple places at once.
The Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute just reopened in a landmark building that was once a firehouse at 120 East 125th Street, right in between the atria and ventricles at the heart of East Harlem.
An abandoned firehouse on the east end of 125th Street will be renovated and transformed into the new home of the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute.
