Bronx Calling: The Sixth AIM Biennial (Part Two)


Presented in two compelling parts, Bronx Calling: The Sixth AIM Biennial showcases the work of 53 emerging artists who completed The Bronx Museum’s annual Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) Fellowship program in 2020, 2021, 2022, or 2023.

In response to the world-altering events of the past four years, these AIM Fellows have been exploring urgent issues through their work—critiquing systems of power through the lens of lived experience and cultural identity as well as pushing boundaries of visual language and materiality. Some artists sought to apply the lens of lived experience to contemporary issues; others used it as a launching pad to imagine possible solutions and speculative futures.

A range of new and recent works that have never been seen before will be on view in the AIM Biennial and for many artists, this is their first opportunity to exhibit work in an institutional setting.

Bronx Calling: The Sixth AIM Biennial is curated by Eileen Jeng Lynch, Director of Curatorial Programs.
