Bronx Museum Takes Artists to School
Dulce Pinzon is just one of 36 artists who were selected to take classes at the Bronx Museum of Arts’ Artists In the Marketplace program. The program focuses on inculcating its students on the fine print of copyright, law and taxes, along with dishing out lessons on marketing. However, more notable is the exhibition that punctuates the finish of each term. This year, the specter (or perhaps the jowls) of Morrissey looms over the graduating class’ show. “How Soon Is Now?” — like perhaps the aggregation of work from any academically-inclined creative community — finds the work of its artists incomplete, if never fully-realized. Consequently, the show has had its fair share of critics, like this one and this one. But we adore these critics because they bare their teeth. And years from now, we’ll see who among these 36 haven’t given up and are still soldiering forward, despite the vitriol.
