New York City's five boroughs will be home to more than 60 incredible photography exhibits this fall as part of the annual Photoville Festival.
Usually taking place just in Brooklyn Bridge Park for two weeks each year (around the corner from Time Out Market New York!), Photoville will now also be taking over Astoria Park, Chelsea Park, Jackie Robinson Park, St. Nicholas Park, Soundview Park, Travers Park, Van Cortlandt Park, and the South Beach Promenade among other public spaces across two months.
Highlights include portraits of NYC's spring graduates in Pandemic Class of 2020 by Elias Williams, a series of photographs documenting the stories of 10 NYC-based Asian Americans who experienced racism during the pandemic called Asian Americans on Race and The Pandemic by Haruka Sakaguchi; a documentary series about the indie wrestling scene in the South Bronx called Bronx Wrestling by Sofie Vasquez; a photo series by the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture inspired by Ross Gay's poem A Small Needful Fact and Stevie Wonder's album, Journey Through the Secret Life of Plants; La Vida en Loisaida by Destiny Mata, who took portraits of longtime residents of the Lower East Side; Q100, a series of photographs by Salvador Espinoza, who took photos along the bus line to Rikers Island; and We Women, a traveling nationwide exhibit coming in 2021 in which women and non-binary artists look at critical issues through photo-based community engagement projects.
At various locations through November 29, 2020.
