It’s Yours exhibition at The Bronx Museum of the Arts

December 27, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until January 10, 2021

Parlá Studios is excited to announce the new publication for Jose Parla’s: It’s Yours exhibition at The Bronx Museum of the Arts, on view until Jan. 10, 2021.

This catalog is co-published with Damiani Editore and features a foreword by Henry Chalfant, an exhibition interview with curator Manon Slome and an essay by Latinx scholar Naiomy Guerrero.

The new paintings evoke the artist’s connection to The Bronx and address the suffering caused by redlining policies, the waves of displacement imposed by gentrification and systematic racism. It’s Yours encourages viewers to question ownership in New York’s rapidly changing neighborhoods. The rich building up of the surface and Parlá’s signature gestural line resemble city walls’ layers. The paintings reflect neighborhoods’ movement and textures, the marks and traces people leave behind and the streets’ energy and challenges.

The new catalog is available now on parlastudios.com, which we are proud to share with you for the first time.

A very special thanks to Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery, Ben Brown Fine Arts, Rockefeller Brothers Fund: Culpeper Arts & Culture Program, Arison Arts Foundation, Toby D. Lewis, and SRI Fine Art Services.
