DESCRIPTION


El Museo del Barrio’s sixth biennial features the most innovative, cutting-edge art created by Latino, Caribbean, and Latin American artists currently working in the greater New York area.   This year’s edition takes on a broad exploration of the visual energy, events, and aesthetics of the street.  The exhibition spreads all over the city, showcasing a record 75 emerging artists at seven venues.


This window exhibition kicks off The (S) Files, and is accessible to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  It presents a selection of painters and sculptors invested in abstraction but also interested in the narrative form; a sampling of both tendencies reveals the breadth of approaches to exploring space or developing narratives.
