Mel Chin: All Over the Place HIGHLIGHT
|When||8 Apr 2018 - 12 Aug 2018|
|Where|| Queens Museum
New York City Building, Flushing Meadows Corona Park
Queens, NY 11368
Exhibition Opening: Apr 8, 2018, 2 pm – 5 pm
Gather at the Queens Museum to celebrate the opening of Mel Chin: All Over the Place co-produced by the Queens Museum and No Longer Empty.
Experience a special fashion event, meet the Queens Museum’s artists-in-residence, and take a peek at work in progress during open studios! Plus, there will be a free shuttle between the Museum and Mets-Willets Point stop on the 7 train running from 1:30–5:30pm.
All Over the Place features more than 70 works by conceptual artist Mel Chin, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, installations, videos, documentation, and public works. The exhibition will spill out of the Museum, presenting artworks at various sites across New York City, including Chin’s first Mixed Reality work, that open during the Summer.
Chin’s extraordinary range of artistic approaches and unusual use of media allows his work to be malleable and defy classification. Environmental injustice, history, cartography and ecology are some of the disciplines that intersect in Chin’s politically charged work that investigates how art can promote social awareness and animate representation; and how collaborative teamwork can posit community-based solutions to ecological and socio-political crises.
