Taking AIM: 30-Year Anniversary Exhibition
Guest curators Marysol Nieves and Monica Espinel
For three decades, the Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) program has helped to demystify the often opaque professional practices of the art world for artists at the beginning of their careers and has introduced their work to the public. Taking AIM! 30-Year Anniversary Exhibition features archival material documenting the evolution of the AIM program over the years.

Urban Archives: Emilio Sanchez in the Bronx

This exhibition presents a group of works by Emilio Sanchez from The Bronx Museum of the Arts 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.
