The Wandering Lake: Patty Chang in Conversation with Hitomi Iwasaki


Saturday, February 17, 11am – 1:30pm
Queens Museum
Flushing Meadows Corona Park
Queens, NY 11368

Please join us at the Queen’s Museum for a tour and conversation with the artist on the closing weekend of Patty Chang: The Wandering Lake, 2009-2017. After exploring the exhibition Hitomi Iwasaki, Director of Exhibitions and Curator, will lead a discussion with Patty Chang on her practice, research, and the artist’s book published in conjunction with the show. A light lunch will be served.

The Wandering Lake (2009-2017) is a project that redefines the role of artist, image, object and performance in the construction of narratives through an exhibition that integrates video projection, photography, sculpture, publication, and performance as one expansive body of work. Navigating through this work, viewers will explore Chang’s personal, associative, and narrative meditation on mourning, care-giving, geopolitics, and landscape.
