February 19th, 2020

Jasmine Wahi, founder and co-director of Project for Empty Space in Newark, New Jersey, has been named the Holly Block Social Justice Curator at the Bronx Museum. “A city like Newark that has been predominantly a city of color and outside the mainstream has a stigma,” she says. “I feel it gives me a bit of insight into working in the Bronx, which is also a city mainly made up of people of color from all different backgrounds. That is the appeal for me, and that is also what gives me the experience with people who are beyond just the art world. I’m really hoping to make an impact at a wider community level.”
