Making a Bronx escape, embracing silence at the Guggenheim, transforming at the Rubin, and tooling around at Cooper-Hewitt.

GREAT ESCAPE

The Bronx Museum of the Arts is hosting Escape Route: Paintings and Drawings by Jeffrey Spencer Hargrave, featuring a selection of works created by the New York-based artist from 2011 to 2014. Since 1998, Hargrave has produced a compelling, deeply personal body of work incorporating painting, drawing, sculpture, and video that explores the dynamics between race, sexuality, and religion in relation to his upbringing in the south and early adulthood as an African American gay male coming to terms with racial and sexual identity. February 12– May 31. Bronx Museum of the Arts, 1040 Grand Concourse, 718.681.6000, bronxmuseum.org.
