Unfortunately havensbx was not offered a lease from the landlord.
In a brief 7 month history havensbx influenced and inspired many artists, kids and members of the South Bronx Community.
For now a gallery in the same area is being developed, an extraordinary townhouse in Harlem- HavenHarlem will be available for private viewing and events shortly.
Other projects including "Gallery in a School" are being developed with educators, "Hit my Crib"- a unique make-over of South Bronx apartments as well as curatorial advice and programs at other South Bronx locations are happening.
The open Mic that Turtle Will ran for 15 events has been moved to a bar in Harlem and I will have special event days at HavenHarlem and at the South Bronx for more open Mics.
Thank you for your support and I look forward to updating you on the transition.
Coming in 2017
"Women on Maps"
Curated by Barry Kostrinsky
In 2008, Haven exhibited "Men on Maps," a show in which 50+ artists received a NYC Subway map as the starting point for an artwork. This is the sister show.
"Fire in the House"
Artists are invited to bring their rejected Applications, Proposals, Grants, etc. to the gallery.
We will display these papers followed by a monthly burning bon-fire of the rejected papers by the artists.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be included. Drop off papers or mail to 128 Alexander Ave Bronx, NY 10454
