The Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos is returning home with the ground-breaking exhibition Light & Shadow: Redefining Visual Spaces, featuring the works of eight artists that incorporate elements of light and shadow to create visually powerful narratives. Some of the artists use technology in their artworks to redefine the role of light in visual art. Addressing the polarized role of ever-changing technology and its effects, Light & Shadow: Redefining Visual Spaces, invites viewers to experience light’s relationship to our environment and ecosystems. These works give us a new perspective on how to experience light (or lack thereof) creatively and thematically.
This exhibition is part of Longwood’s 2022 season calendar focused on Polarities and exploring the dualities that Bronx artists engage in with their art practices and at varying scales, from the personal and political to the global and historical. Over the course of the year, the Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos will provide a space for critically engaging with the polarized political and social forces of our time and the way in which Bronx artists reflect on this contemporary moment.

About Bronx Council On The Arts
Founded by visionary community leaders in 1962, the Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) is dedicated to advancing cultural equity in Bronx. From creative placemaking and arts advocacy to the provision of services for artists and arts organizations, as well as programming for children and seniors, BCA was the first organization in Bronx to focus equally on supporting local artists, serving the community, and catalyzing relationships between the two.
Since its founding, BCA has focused on the work of underrepresented groups, especially artists of color, women, and members of the LGBTQ community. We provide direct services to over 1,000 artists and 250 community-based arts groups each year, and thanks to our granting programs, we are able to touch the lives of over thousands of audience members.
