Event Details


Opening reception: Groana Meléndez and Emily Raboteau

Curated by Oscar J. Rivera, the works in this exhibition discuss the ideas of class as related to identity and race, as well as through the environmental intervention of leaving an area in disrepair. Meléndez uses intergenerational family connections to create an understanding of the intersections of class and race. Raboteau uses portraits of subway posters left to decay to highlight the lack of attention lower-income neighborhoods receive in comparison to their counterparts. Produced by En Foco, in collaboration with CUNY in the Heights and NoMAA.

Exhibition dates: 8 June – 3 August 2017
