Nina Berman | Bronx Gardens
June 2 - August 16
The photographs in the Gardens series redefine the possibility of urban life, taking the South Bronx, with its infamous history and imagining it as a place of natural sustenance, promise and tranquility. Over the years motivated residents who saw possibility where others found wreckage cleaned out abandoned sites and created green spaces - islands of calm that nurtured themselves and their neighborhood, one plot at a time.

Featuring photography, film and multimedia, this is the first exhibition to show Hetherington’s final work from Libya.
