DESCRIPTION

A forum and test site for new ideas, BRONX LAB engages audiences in topics relevant to our surrounding communities. Through different social media platforms as well as hands-on activities, viewers will be asked to interact with the exhibition's main themes and exercise their critical views. Drawing primarily from the Museum's permanent collection, BRONX LAB's first exhibition will look at the explosion of graffiti art that happened in the South Bronx in the late 1970s, featuring artworks by Rigoberto Torres, Tim Rollins and KOS, Lily van der Stokker, Glendalys Medina, Keith Haring and William Boroughs, La Pandilla, Lady K. Fever, among others.
