Confidence in the Future, presented by the Bronx Council on the Arts at the Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos, is an exhibition of Bronx artists working in diverse mediums and formats around questions of how to imagine the future, and who gets the right to envision what it may look like. The show explores what it means to build the future we want to see; dystopian or utopian realities, perhaps as a result of drastic climate change; and different ways of paying homage or respect to histories of resistance, whether interpersonal or societal, which inspire artists in the present. Artwork themes include black and brown futurism, exploring personal archives, and reimagined use of recycled materials. The exhibition was curated collectively by staff of the Bronx Council for the Arts.

Curated collaboratively by the Bronx Council on the Arts staff, Rebecca Pristoop and Arianna Reyes
