OPEN CALL : ART FROM THE BOROS VIII- JAN 30, 2021
It’s that time of the year again, Denise Bibro Fine Art is looking for new artists for our open call for “Art from The Boros VIII”
For the past seven years we have selected diverse and hardworking artists to participate in this annual group show highlighting talent found within New York City’s five boroughs. The mission of the exhibition is to seek and find the pulse of talent in the city that is often overlooked and underexposed.
This time around due to COVID we will conduct our search and presentation differently.
We are asking artists in the five boroughs to submit all works virtually. From these submissions we will choose TEN artists for a virtual exhibition in February. From those ten artists we will then choose TWO artists to have a joint show sometime in the Summer.
This year has been challenging for everyone, especially the fine arts industry and everyone in it, and that is why we would like to give this opportunity to the artists of New York City to show with Denise Bibro Fine Art.

CAROL JACOBSEN: SYSTEM OF INJUSTICE | BRONXARTSPACE
Carol Jacobsen will be featured in the group show System of Injustice along side Bronx-based artists at the BronxArtSpace, The Bronx, NY.
The show will be on view August 7 through September, 2019. The opening reception will take place August 10, 6:30-9pm.
Inspired by Patricia Hill Collins’ examination of the matrix of domination, Systems of Injustice seeks to examine the structural (organization of power and oppression), disciplinary (the management and sustaining of oppression), hegemonic (legitimization of oppression), and interpersonal (the interactions and consciousness of oppressed people) domains of dominations intersect to create systemic oppression for people of color. By exploring the different ways these domains support and sustain each other, featured artists are confronting a system that has never been based on the equality of its participants. We are seeking works that examine race, gender, sexuality, educational equality, socioeconomic status, religion, citizenship status, and the many other ways in which people of color are bereft in a world dominated by Western Thought.

Oscar Wilde pointed out that Historians record the Past, Journalists chronicle the Present, but it is our Artists who divine the Future. They are the canaries in our collective coal mine. Artists dream dreams no one else has dreamt, conjure visions no one else has seen. They look beyond the horizon and see guideposts yet unseen.
Annually we survey in our Hearst Galleries a sampling of what artists are creating now, the conversations they have initiated and extended. This year, Climate Change preoccupies many minds and we have subtitled our 2019 edition of Art Now as metamorphosis: changing climate.
We hope you enjoy the experience. The images are extraordinary.
— Gilbert C. Maurer, Director & Former COO, Hearst

ANDY SWEET: THE LAST RESORT
Directed by Dennis Scholl & Kareem Tabsch, 70 minutes
Cameos of Denise A. Bibro, Director of Denise Bibro Fine Art!
You can view the trailer HERE
“Before the arrival of Miami Vice and MTV Spring Break, South Beach was home to the largest cluster of Jewish retirees in the country. Drawn by the small apartments, low cost of living, sunny weather, and thriving cultural life, they came by the thousands seeking refuge from the Northeast’s brutal winters. By the 1970s, these former New Yorkers had turned from seasonal visitors to year-round residents, making Miami Beach home to a population that was primarily over 70 and overwhelmingly Jewish. The Last Resort takes audiences on a journey to the iconic Miami Beach of that era through the lens of young photographers Andy Sweet and Gary Monroe. With cameras in hand, they embarked on an ambitious 10-year project to document this unique chapter in the city’s history, which would soon be erased by the turbulent 1980s. Featuring interviews with Pulitzer Prize winner Edna Buchanan, filmmaker Kelly Reichardt, photographer Gary Monroe, and more, The Last Resort is a stunning testament to a community all but forgotten… until now.”
