Liene Bosquê: Dismissed Traces
The spirit of Brazilian artist Liene Bosquê’s work resides in lost architectures, disappeared monuments, and other structural extinctions. She recreates pieces of architecture and space in installations, using or referencing found elements of crumbling structures and miniature building models. In one piece, she fashions a town of mini pyramid souvenirs– like the touristy ones you’d get at the gift shop outside Chichen Itza. It’s an interesting commentary on memories and impressions in relation to space and the constructions. The opening is Wednesday, October 14th from 6 to 8pm.

Via PanAm - The Pursuit of Happiness by Kadir van Lohuizen
Questions around migration– “a phenomenon which is as old as humanity but is increasingly portrayed as a new threat to the Western world”– occupy the center idea of this photography show at the Bronx Documentary Center. Kadir van Lohuizen documents indigenous communities and stories of migration from Chile to Alaska through telling photographs. Check out the work this Saturday, October 17th from 6 to 9pm at the opening reception.

The show is up until March 7th, 2016.
