Queens International 2016
Apr 10 - Jul 31 2016
Opening Reception: April 10, 2016, 4-8pm

A tradition since 2001, Queens International is the Museum’s biannual exhibition of artists living or working in Queens. While each iteration has its own curatorial team and vision, what remains constant is the central aim of highlighting and contextualizing the artistic vibrancy of the borough through contemporary cultural productions in all media.

Queens International 2016 characteristically looks to the idea of thresholds, and the way these spaces for transition, contact, and exchange become markers for the complexity of the forces that shape contemporary life. Many of the 35 participating artists, collectives, and partner organizations, use performance-based and site-specific approaches to activate the museum’s architectural and historical context. Ongoing projects in Queens International 2016 include experimental and often participatory events, genre-bending musical concerts, and international collaborations between Queens artists and their global counterparts. The politics of borders and border-crossing are expanded through the exhibition and complementary public programs to include not only the discourse of physical territory and migration, but also the act of transgressing between artistic disciplines, linguistic or ideological divides, digital and human interfaces, and prescriptive narratives of the past, present, and future.

References and source materials used by the artists zoom in and out of visibility from local to global, from micro to macro, and from private to public: the dominance of Western advertising in post-conflict Beirut; the international ubiquity of Mariachi bands; hyper-development in the New York City real estate market; the not-so-anonymous crowdsourced Internet marketplace; and the remixing of artistic identity with a Jazz legend. Queens International 2016 navigates these shifts between the assumed binaries and examines the ways in which these systems regulate our bodies and environments.

Queens International 2016 is organized by guest curator Lindsey Berfond and Queens Museum Director of Exhibitions Hitomi Iwasaki.

Participants:

Manal Abu-Shaheen, Vahap Avşar, Jesus Benavente and Felipe Castelblanco, Brian Caverly, Kerry Downey, Magali Duzant, Golnaz Esmaili, Mohammed Fayaz, Kate Gilmore, Jonah Groeneboer, Bang Geul Han and Minna Pöllänen, Dave Hardy, Sylvia Hardy, Shadi Harouni, Janks Archive, Robin Kang, Kristin Lucas, Carl Marin, Eileen Maxson, Melanie McLain, Shane Mecklenburger, Lawrence Mesich, Mike Plunkett, Freya Powell, Xiaoshi Vivian Vivian Qin, Alan Ruiz, Samita Sinha and Brian Chase, Barb Smith, Monika Sziladi, Alina Tenser, Trans-Pecos (with 8 Ball Community, ESP TV, and Chillin Island), Mark Tribe, Sam Vernon, Max Warsh, and Jennifer Williams

Jessica Langley
January 29 - March 25, 2016
Curated by Jessica Langley

Opening reception: Friday, January 29, 2016 6-9 pm
On view at SPACES: January 29 - March 25, 2016

Participating artists include:
Leah Beeferman (Brooklyn,
Jerstin Crosby (Hampton Bays, NY)
Julie Grosche (Richmond, VA/New York, NY)
Ad Minoliti (Buenos Aires, AR)
Leslie Thornton (Providence, RI)

g00g13 34r+h, is a collection of video works with intersecting subject matter: space and terrain. Engaging a variety of perspectives from the microscopic, to the outsider, to the omniscient, these works engage in this dynamic of looking, watching, and examining up close and far out.

These works dismantle hierarchies through varying points of view and new proposals. In one video we see a casual observance of other visitors wandering in a desert. In another is a mysteriously rendered molten asteroid pummeling towards an unspecified location. We see cold presentations dissecting the definition of empty space and the proliferation of a Mondrian as a tool to investigate trans-human utopia. There is a reframing of a horse rider as a geological object.

The title of this collection refers to both the tool and the action required for utilization. The corporation represents ultimate power, in this socio-political age, yet the dichotomy of Google is one that anonymously collects data, yet shares information freely. By framing these works around this ubiquitous mapping mechanism, we provide an analysis to how we see. Within this collection is a questioning of the role of the artist and viewer, how we see and create an object, a place, or a landscape. -

Jessica Langley, Flat screen, Looping HD video animation

iMotion
February 15 - March 8, 2013
Opening Reception: Friday, February 15, 2013 6-10pm
At Delicious Spectacle, 1366 Quincy Street NW, Washington DC

Artists: Deborah Anzinger, Man Bartlett, Marcus Civin, Jessica Langley, Heather Ravenscroft, and Joshua Wade Smith

Curated by: Megan Mueller

Washington DC - Delicious Spectacle is pleased to present iMotion, a group exhibition featuring work by Deborah Anzinger, Man Bartlett, Marcus Civin, Jessica Langley, Heather Ravenscroft, and Joshua Wade Smith and curated by Megan Mueller. iMotion investigates the idea of choreography operating within the studio practices of visual artists. The works in the exhibition fall in the spectrum from planned motion to improvisation. Using video, painting, photography, performance and sculpture, these artists explore the use of repetition to build momentum, the relationship between mind and body, interaction with the audience, labor and physicality.

Deborah Anzinger creates sculptural paintings from digital prints on canvas, spray paint on aluminum, and paint on clay. The resulting objects have a delightful logic that involves force, nimbleness, and sequencing. Man Bartlett will display a video featuring imagery from a series of scans (inspired by an animated gif) reflecting elements from his meditative process. Jessica Langley’s work playfully blurs the boundaries between still image, animated gif, and art object, using a combination of screen savers depicting "sublime" nature and an animated sequence of a decorative wreath. Heather Ravenscroft creates a series of quiet celebrations between herself and the animals who inhabit the forest behind her house. Heather will show photographs and objects documenting the interactions. Joshua Wade Smith and Marcus Civin will work together in a collaborative performance and sculpture that will respond to mutual concerns about contemporary urban space as a starting point to enact and consider a clearing, collecting, burrowing and doubling.

About Delicious Spectacle
Delicious Spectacle is a curatorial experiment and project space founded by Victoria Greising, Megan Mueller, Dan Perkins, Camden Place, and Sam Scharf. The space was founded for the growing community of emerging artists and artist run spaces in the District of Columbia. Throughout the year, Delicious Spectacle will curate multi-disciplinary exhibitions, host lectures, critiques, and critical theory discussions. This programing attempts to cultivate dialogue surrounding a wide variety of contemporary art making practices and operates as a space for artists and curators to execute novel and challenging projects that redefine and further their thinking.
