Hot! Art Happening and You’re Invited… Find Out More.

No Longer Empty (NLE), the NYC nonprofit organization that creates public art exhibitions in empty storefronts that are free to the public, is slated to debut a new project in the Bronx.  When You Cut Into the Present the Future Leaks Out, occupies three floors of the Old Bronx Borough Courthouse (878 Brook Ave at East 161 St and Third Ave), and includes the site-specific works of 26 artists, commissioned by the organization. The space itself—a beautiful Beaux Arts-style building shuttered for 37 years, until now — acts a time capsule, witness, and symbol existing within a plurality of narratives about its future role in the neighborhood.

From now through mid-July, NLE will present a range of unique mini exhibitions and events within the space, including:
  • June 18th: “The Shifting Sands: New Dynamics in the Bronx Art Scene” – a thought-provoking panel discussion on issues of gentrification and how art can band communities together. Includes a mini-exhibit showing history of “redlining,” presented as part of The Hostos Center for Bronx Nonprofit’s “Public Conversations Series”
  • June 27th: Deborah Fisher & Paul Ramirez Jonas, ”Something For Nothing” performance focusing on creative alchemy and how neon signs represent endless possibilities
  • Ongoing: “Teens Curate Teens” Future Fix exhibition – “Teens Curate Teens” is a curatorial training program where students work closely with the staff to learn and discuss how to produce their own exhibition in the No Longer Empty site. The artwork in Future Fix is student created.
