Exhibition of eleven artists responding to the epidemic of gun violence in the USA

About

Bronx Art Space is pleased to announce Beverly Emers' curatorial debut in Giving Light: An Art Antidote to Gun Violence. Through the lens of a mother, community organizer, and Bronx resident she presents an exhibit of diverse forms of expression that will provoke thought, emotion, conversation, and a call to action. She’s joined by 10 artists in an artistic response to this public health issue that primarily impacts communities of color. The exhibition gives light to the issue and the need for healing from trauma while sending light to those who have survived and those who are no longer here due to the epidemic of gun violence. Programming aims to transform our gallery space to reflect, uplift, educate, embrace, build community and promote healing.

In a photographic tribute, Julia Justo memorializes and acknowledges the transgender community. The photos are meant to bring awareness and promote advocacy against the onslaught of gender violence
