Everyday Bronx Opens Friday March 31 at the Bronx Documentary Center
@EverydayBronx is an Instagram account started in 2014 as part of The Everyday Projects initiative. On March 31 the Everyday Bronx exhibition featuring these photos and videos will open at the Bronx Documentary Center! RSVP for the opening reception March 31 here and for the April 4 panel discussion here
The exhibition will feature more than 50 photographs and video displays, mostly done on cellphones, from what has become an important online archive of Bronx life. By encouraging followers to photograph their neighborhoods, Everyday Bronx fosters artistic expression from a range of individuals, not just trained photographers, and creates a unique online archive of documentary images of the Bronx. The photos and videos portray the real Bronx, dispelling misconceptions about the borough.
The exhibit’s opening night will feature music, breakdancing, and graffiti––celebrating the history of the Bronx as the birthplace of hip-hop and its role as an epicenter of creative art, music, and dance.
