'Recuerdos' and Latinidad

Things to do in the Bx

Bronx Blue Bedroom Project presents


By Melissa A. Calderon

September 6 – September 29

Opening reception for the artist: 2-5 p.m., Saturday, September 6

In Recuerdos, Melissa explores the creation of a transnational “fantasy heritage”. Using installation, photography, sculpture and video, she examines stereotypical imagery within the context of American assimilative process of Latinidad. The work addresses the discourse of the construction of a hybrid identity from the 2nd generation Latino perspective. While exploring the ideas of cultural alienation and rememory, Recuerdos brings a new context to emotional embeddedness of Latino culture.
