BronxArtSpace started this year, in the same space that we used to call Synthetic Zero Art Space. This year, Linda Cunningham, Mitsu Hadeishi, and a group of artists, curators and arts organizations are collaborating to create a series of events, art shows, experimental film, performance, music, readings, and classes.
