ARTISTS IN (THEIR) RESIDENCE: XIN LIU
|When||16 Jun 2020 - 30 Jul 2020|
New York City Building, Flushing Meadows Corona Park
Queens, NY 11368
We are catching up with Queens Museum Studio Program artists to learn more about what they’ve been reflecting on and creating during this time at home. We are excited to present A Free Fall in New York City, a video that chronicles artist Xin Liu‘s experience sheltering in place while her home operates as a warehouse for volunteers distributing PPE across the city. Liu refers to the sensation of free falling and becoming weightless in her practice, while she connects with satellites on her rooftop to see the world from far above. For her “community shout out,” the artist spotlights the work of volunteer networks and organizations focused on providing PPE to NYC frontline workers: Last Mile NYC, N95 for NYC, ATTA INC., and The Mask Fund.
