International Art to make its mark on Queens

November 6, 2013 by  

The Queens Museum of Art will be hosting its biennial celebration of art and culture in the borough of Queens as of this weekend.

Curated by Meiya Cheng and Hitomi Iwasaki, Queens International 2013 will coincide with the museum’s re-opening after being closed for remodeling. The event will feature local artists from Queens, and will also feature international artists from Cheng’s home country of Taiwan. The idea is to explore the possible connection between two cities on opposite sides of the world.

Attendees can expect to see a wide variety of different exhibits, and they can look forward to a range of performances and events, several of which feature audience participation. Some examples of the activities taking place during Queens International 2013 are a pickling workshop, a DJ performance with audience participation, a duet performed over Skype, a play taking place simultaneously at different museum spaces in the city, and a workshop about surveillance and drone-building.

Organizers are likely to turn to printing companies to help them advertise for it. Flyer and posters are great advertising tools and can be distributed in many neighborhoods throughout the city, like Flushing or Long Island City, to generate more interest in the event. The curators or individual artists may also look to brochure printers to create informational pamphlets or programs that might provide added insight to audience members at performances and exhibitions.

Queens International 2013 kicks off on Saturday, November 9, and runs until Sunday, January 19 in 2014.
