On View

Collection Spotlight: Morton Broffman
January 4 - Ongoing
In honor of Black History Month, the Bronx Museum is featuring four works by the Bronx-born photographer Morton Broffman. In the spring of 1965, Broffman was among the scores of print journalists, television reporters, and photographers from around the country who traveled to Alabama in 1965 to participate in and record the Selma to Montgomery voting rights march. Read more >
Collection Spotlight: Öyvind Fahlström
January 4 through February 5, 2017
This month the Bronx Museum highlights the work of Brazilian artist Öyvind Fahlström. Working in a wide range of media and themes, Fahlström avoided affiliation with any art category throughout his brief albeit productive career. Equally influenced by surrealism, pop art, situationism, and even documentary filmmaking, Fahlström borrowed imagery and styles from comics and the media to create original and relevant artworks that unmask the absurdities of modern society. Read more >
Linda Cunningham: South Bronx Waterfront Sagas
On view through February 19, 2017
Linda Cunningham explores the issues of time, transience, and contradictions through images of the shifting urban present. Environmental concerns juxtaposed against industry, urban blight, and the loss of the natural environment drive her practice, in addition to gentrification and the changing landscape of the Bronx, her home for many years. Read more >

Robert Raphael: Symposium
On view through February 19, 2017
Robert Raphael’s ceramic-based work draws on the complex history of decorative art, a tradition that intersects and runs parallel to the history of art. Rather than interpreting ornamentation as superficial, Raphael believes that the strength of decoration lies in its seductive nature and the complex meanings that often result when surface, mass, pattern, and cultural history conflate. Read more >
