BRAC is proud to announce the upcoming exhibition, Never Wait! / ¡Nunca Esperes!. This exhibition showcases the Bronx’s visual arts community in a distinctive light that sets it apart from the rest of NYC. Running from April 13 to June 8, 2024, Never Wait! / ¡Nunca Esperes! offers a glimpse into over a decade of alternative artist-run endeavors that have blossomed from the South Bronx to Athens, Greece. Produced by Bronx-based Mexican-American Artist, project initiator, and organizer Blanka Amezkua, the show will spotlight her efforts to foster dialogue and advocate for multicultural perspectives and non-traditional modes of art practice.

This show brings together artists from five manifestations of Amezkua’s cultural work: The Bronx Blue Bedroom Project (BBBP), a pioneering artist-run initiative in her bedroom that ran from 2008-2010, Alexander Avenue Apartment 3A (AAA3A), an alternative space offering food, dialogue, workshops, and art, which Amezuka has been producing in her unfurnished South Bronx living room since 2016, Fo Kia Nou 24/7, a project space in an intimate apartment in the center of Athens, Greece that encouraged creative collaboration between Greek and foreign artists from 2014 to 2016, 8 to 8: State of Creative Emergency, an initiative where creative minds are invited to construct and realize a unique project and execute it for 12 hours straight; from 8am to 8pm, and 3///3...three walls on wednesday, an alternative initiative to exhibit art from national and international artists in Athens, Greece.

A zine publication highlighting the artists and artwork of Amezkua’s many initiatives will accompany the exhibition. The zine will be available at BRAC and other cultural institutions around the Bronx. 

Never Wait! / ¡Nunca Esperes! aspires to spark dialogue, inspire engagement, and deepen appreciation for The Bronx's cultural heritage and its connections to the international art world. The collaboration between Amezkua and BRAC strives to shed light on the phenomena of alternative artist-run spaces within our vibrant community.
