Opened Saturday, July 15 at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanic Garden , 2 pm to 4 pm. On view through September 17. Yes, if you want to take in this exhibition you’ll have to take a ferry to get there. The Staten Island Ferry. And if you really need some persuading, here’s a reminder that you can buy beer on the ferry. Although once you arrive at the Snug Harbor Cultural Center, Irma Bohórquez-Geisler’s photography exhibition documenting the borough’s Mexican immigrant population will be sure to sober you up. The exhibition, curated by NYU art history professor Edward J. Sullivan, consists of 35 silver gelatin portraits depicting the everyday life of the Staten Island Mexican community, showing them shopping, attending church, socializing with family. It’s part of the artist’s ongoing social documentary project, titled “Simple Moments of an Emerging Presence.” Since Bohórquez-Geisler is also the founder of the Staten Island Día de Muertos and has been honored for her work to preserve the unique history of the borough, she seems refreshingly far from the type of artist to enter a community she does not belong to in an effort to capture their essence (and gain social clout for doing so.) Knowing that, the ferry ride will be well worth it. Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden 1000 Richmond Ter, Staten Island, New York 10301
