08-08-2018 12:00:00 12-08-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Mel Chin | Time Vary Mel Chin: All Over the Place, presents a fresh, multi-location exhibition with exciting manifestations of the work of Mel Chin co-produced by the Queens Museum and No Longer Empty. The exhibition will span nearly four decades of Chin's malleable and wide-ranging approach to artistic practice that has evaded any neat classification. Exhibition sites in New York City include the Queens Museum, Times Square, and the Broadway-Lafayette subway station. The objects and project artifacts in All Over the Place will be organized around the thematic strands that have long preoccupied Chin's thinking, including the natural environment, socioeconomic systems and injustice, the weight of lamentations as well as the lightness of humor to reveal truths. Botany, ecology, and oceanography are examples of the disciplines that intersect in the artist's politically charged work and demonstrate how art can promote social awareness and responsibility and reanimate curiosity. Select works will highlight Chin's engagement of multi-disciplinary, collaborative teamwork in order to posit community-based solutions to ecological and sociopolitical crises. As a result of such teamwork, Chin's work challenges the idea of the artist as the exclusive creative force behind an artwork. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=276522 Queens Museum Queens Museum
