MTV has coordinated an exhibit in Atlantic Terminal with nearly 100 pieces of work made by LGBTQIA+ artists as part of the 2020 Video Music Awards.
Bronson Farr says their photographs are meant to show Black people in a way he believes society doesn't always portray. He says he has people appear shirtless or hold flowers as a way to show they are not a threat.
The Harlem photographer is one of several local emerging Black and indigenous artists who are part of the exhibit.
Brooklyn-based illustrator Eugenia Mello says they're honored to be selected as the exhibit aims to amplify underrepresented voices.
MTV says the inclusive art exhibit is meant to thank Brooklyn for hosting the upcoming VMAs, scheduled for Sunday at several outdoor venues across the city. 
The art will be on display through Sept. 6.
