About Riverfront Art Gallery
The Riverfront Art Gallery is a 1,450 square foot space located on the 4th floor of the Riverfront Library, the main branch of the Yonkers Public Library (3D model of gallery).
Riverfront Art Gallery's mission is to encourage all Yonkers residents to explore, experience and appreciate the arts, and to celebrate the city's vibrant art scene and history. It does so through exhibiting contemporary and acclaimed works from established and emerging artists, with a special emphasis on local artists and those that reflect the city's diverse communities. It also facilitates art workshops and lectures for the general public and professional development opportunities for artists. Consistent with the values of the public library that houses it, everybody is welcome to visit the gallery and attend its programs, free of charge.
Haifa Bint-Kadi is the curator for the gallery and schedules exhibits generally one year in advance. To contact the curator, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Across Imaginary Boundaries
September 7, 2023 - January 18, 2024
Across Imaginary Boundaries: Cultures from the Caribbean share a history rooted in colonization and oppression across geographies. What does it mean to explore identity and place within the foregrounding of this cultural backdrop and in the realm of contemporary art? We seek to explore a diverse range of artistic production rooted in diasporic identity across the Caribbean while celebrating new modes of thinking about shifting identities within the bounty and beauty of Caribbean cultures. We seek art that brings together people from these unique regions of the Caribbean diaspora that creates new narratives based in adaption and the multitudes of experiences, art that explores representation, the recovery of ancestral knowledge and connections to nature.
