An exhibition on Cuban American artist Emilio Sánchez—“Urban Archives: Emilio Sánchez in the Bronx”—is on view at the Bronx Museum of the Arts through January 1, 2012. The museum is located at 1040 Grand Concourse at 165th Street, Bronx, New York. For more information on a collection of Sánchez’ work at the Bronx Museum of the Arts, see previous post Bronx Museum Receives Gift of 25 Works from Emilio Sánchez Foundation.
Description: The Bronx Museum of the Arts presents a group of works by Emilio Sánchez from their Permanent Collection, together with related archival material and a special interpretive project by Bronx-based artist Laura Napier. All the works depict commercial buildings in the Hunts Point area of the South Bronx. With a colorful palette and rigorous architectural design, these works depict the bodegas and auto shops of the Bronx in an almost idyllic style that makes a stark contrast with preconceived views of the borough.
