The Walk Exchange

The Walk Exchange

Sunday, May 27th from 1-3pm

The Bronx River Art Center is pleased to present the collaborative team The Walk Exchange at the Shifting Communities Roundtable as part of No Longer Empty's This Side of Paradise exhibition at the Andrew Freedman Home located at 1125 Grand Concourse in the Bronx.

How can a threshold become an invitation? The collaborative group The Walk Exchange will consider the boundary between the Andrew Freedman Home and the Grand Concourse as a space of past, present and future negotiations. First by leading an open roundtable conversation that considers how city dwellers experience fences, barriers and doorways, followed by a workshop to transform these ideas through a circumnavigation of the Andrew Freedman home itself. As the group is led on a wandering tour, participants will interact with the building's fences and entryways in a spirited re-imagining through body movements and the momentary construction of new physical pathways woven from colorful yarn and ribbons. After the walk, a final discussion will take place of the discoveries.

Using walking as a method for interpreting boundaries and creating connections, this workshop will uncover new relationships between the Andrew Freedman Home and its pre-existing points of entry.
