Light and Shadow: Redefining Visual Spaces | The Bronx Daily


Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos returns home with groundbreaking exhibition Light and shadow: redefining visual spaces, featuring the works of eight artists who incorporate elements of light and shadow to create visually powerful narratives. Some artists use technology in their works to redefine the role of light in the visual arts. Addressing the polarized role of ever-changing technology and its effects, Light and shadow: redefining visual spaces, invites viewers to discover the relationship of light with our environment and our ecosystems. These works give us a new perspective on how to experience light (or lack thereof) creatively and thematically.

This exhibition is part of Longwood’s 2022 season calendar focusing on Polarities and explore the dualities in which Bronx artists engage with their artistic practices and at different scales, from the personal and political to the global and historical. Over the course of the year, the Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos will provide a space to critically engage with the polarized political and social forces of our time and how Bronx artists reflect on this contemporary moment.

About the Bronx Council On The Arts

Founded by visionary community leaders in 1962, the Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) is dedicated to promoting cultural equity in the Bronx. From creating creative venues and advocating for the arts, to providing services to artists and arts organizations, and programming for children and seniors, BCA was the first organization in the Bronx to equally focus on supporting local artists, serving the community and catalyzing relationships between the two.

Since its founding, BCA has focused on the work of underrepresented groups, particularly artists of color, women, and members of the LGBTQ community. We provide direct services to over 1,000 artists and 250 community arts groups each year, and through our grantmaking programs we are able to touch the lives of over thousands of viewers.
