Initiative Marks Third Annual Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) Biennial

The Bronx Museum of the Arts will introduce to the public the work of 72 artists who are launching their careers in Bronx Calling: The Third AIM Biennial. Organized by Independent Curator Laura Napier and the Bronx Museum’s Curator of Education Hatuey Ramos-Fermin, the exhibition will feature a range of work from sculpture to photography, installations, printmaking, collage, painting, performance, drawing, video, animation, and artist books. The artists featured in Bronx Calling: The Third AIM Biennial are part of the Museum’s collaborative residency program Artists in the Marketplace (AIM)—an initiative that works to demystify the often-opaque professional practices of the art world for artists at the beginning of their careers. AIM participants engage directly with established artists, collectors, art critics, lawyers, curators, and other art world professionals to learn practical and critical skills to begin their careers. At the end of each residency, the artists are provided a platform to present their work to the public.

Five of the AIM artists participating in the show this year—Nicholas Fraser, Sharon Ma, Rob Swainston, Rica Takashima, and David Wilson—will also be developing site-specific artworks for FLOW.15—an annual outdoor art exhibition on Randall’s Island aimed at fostering appreciation of the shoreline through artistic expression. 

All AIM artists currently live in New York and hail from countries across the globe including Australia, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Denmark, Ethiopia, Germany, Haiti, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Poland, Russia, South Korea, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
