About the Exhibit:
On view in the Arsenal Gallery, “Nueva Bronx: 21st Century Families” is artist David Flores’ response to recent nationalist movements that have attempted to remove and erase familiar representations of immigrants and people of color. In 2018, Flores offered free family portraiture in the Bronx’s Railroad Park and the greater Morrisania neighborhood with on-site photography, printing, display, and digital sharing. Parents, children, elders, extended family, and friends participated in the making of these images and left with a large format print of themselves free of charge.
NYC Parks presents this project in collaboration with ArtBuilt, Queens Museum, DreamYard, WHEDco and Bronx Defenders.
This exhibition is FREE and open to the public.
