CONVERSIONs | one-night stands is a month-long art festival in April 2010 showcasing emerging and established artists at BronxArtSpace in the Mott Haven neighborhood of the South Bronx, curated by Melissa Calderón. Since 2004, each CONVERSIONs presents a unique curatorial theme; CONVERSIONs | one-night stands focuses on the ephemeral nature that contemporary art is seen and experienced in the South Bronx. Under this larger theme, each evening throughout the month will present works that speak of impermanence, displaced gratification, and the nature of immediacy.
BronxArtSpace started this year, in the same space that we used to call Synthetic Zero Art Space. This year, Linda Cunningham, Mitsu Hadeishi, and a group of artists, curators and arts organizations are collaborating to create a series of events, art shows, experimental film, performance, music, readings, and classes.
The art space is located at 305 East 140th Street #1A, Bronx NY 10454.
We're about 20 minutes from Union Square. From Manhattan, 4-5 train to 125th, transfer to 6, one stop to 3rd Ave/138th St, it's 2 blocks from there. Note there are two exits at 3rd Ave/138th, one at Alexander Ave and one at 3rd Ave. Ring 3A if 1A does not answer.
