Selected works from over 40 artists address the persistent condition of injustice by presenting empowering concepts of the self, body, and community in SPEAK OUT.

SPEAK OUT demonstrates the persistent visions of cultural fortitude, resistance, and insurrection that make up our community in the Bronx and the greater New York City. In a borough with a rich history of resistance and community organizing, we are honored to produce this exhibition at BronxArtSpace at the start of a new year in the post-no indictment era, contemplating a justice system in the United States that is clearly unjust.

Artworks and performances address legacies of injustice, offer alternatives to institutional racism, and present empowering and honest images of the self, body, community, and reality that affirm that #BlackLivesMatter.

James Baldwin states “the most dangerous creation of any society is the man who has nothing to lose.” A culture that deprives Black and Brown women and men of educational opportunities, housing, human equity, sexual, gender, and financial, protection leaves nothing more to lose. SPEAK OUT strives to acknowledge and further legitimize the pain and anger while also sparking concepts for a greater future.
