Add to Calendar 21-06-2012 01-09-2012 15 Lobby-for-the-Time-Being Expanding on his playful, ongoing exploration of architecture, the Bronx-born conceptual artist Vito Acconci, in collaboration with a team of architects and media artists, has radically transformed the Bronx Museum North Wing Lobby through a series of interventions built with Corian. A smooth, hard material that is not quite translucent and not quite opaque, CorianĀ© is used by the Acconci Studio as if it were a pliable soft fabric: cut open and slit into strips, pulled and stretched, pitted and gouged, rolled and curved, and braided and knotted, making it behave almost as if it were an organism. Through this series of operations, the slick material often associated with kitchen countertops is transformed into a lace-like surface on which images and shadows cast by the audience are projected. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=113107 Bronx Museum of The Arts true DD/MM/YYYY

Venue Description: Founded in 1971, the Bronx Museum of the Arts features a collection of 20th-century and contemporary art. The Bronx Museum of the Arts has a permanent collection of 20th- and 21st-century works by artists of African-, Asian-, and Latin-American ancestry. The museum strives to reach the public by offering educational programs for children and families.

The education department offers many programs for children of all ages. The Family Affair afternoon program hosts activities performances, and guided tours. Through Teen Council, groups of high-school students work with instructors in a media lab on creating projects like video podcasts. For schools and community groups, the Group Visits program offers analytical and interactivities about contemporary art. Also, art classes are offered each fall and spring, and there are workshops for educators focusing on how to read art and bring others into conversation about the work.
