The Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) presents Radical Elegance, an online exhibition curated by Yelaine Rodriguez.
Radical Elegance features photographers who are subverting and actively challenging traditional fashion photography, taking charge of their narratives, documenting their communities, and shedding light on BIPOC cultures.
This online exhibition is part of the 2021 Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos’ season focused on “The Bronx: Then and Now,” exploring how Bronx art and style have changed over the years.
Join us in celebrating the opening of Radical Elegance with The Young Icons Panel on Wednesday, March 24th, 2021 at 6:00 PM, featuring guest curator Yelaine Rodriguez and artists in the exhibition.

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.
