Queens Museum
New York City Building Flushing Meadows
October 7, 2018–February 24, 2019

Curated by Sophia Marisa Lucas with Baseera Khan

In 2013, the Queens Museum completed a new wing that doubled the institution’s size and created a skylit interior plaza for public gatherings. A second phase of construction will incorporate a branch of the Queens Library. To consider what forms of community engagement might arise from the merger of museum and library, the eighth Queens International will explore alternative modes of reading, information storage, and archival research, with work by Gabriela Salazar, Milford Graves, Camel Collective, and other borough-based artists. Concurrently, Patrick Killoran, Mo Kong, and Paolo Javier (in collaboration with David Mason) will stage interventions in select library branches. The exhibition is being organized by assistant curator Sophia Marisa Lucas with artist Baseera Khan, and will be accompanied by a website designed by Ryan Kuo and edited by Larissa Harris.
