Big Queens Drawing Show at JCAL – Sept 5, 2012-October 31, 2012

I have been invited to participate in Big Queens Drawing Show in September 2012. I created two drawings for this show and decided to show this one: “Clusters”, ink and watercolor on paper, 22 x 30 inches, 2012


This drawing will have to wait for another exhibition: “Clusters”, ink and watercolor on paper, 22 x 30 inches, 2012




Sept 5, 2012-October 31, 2012

Artist’s Reception: Wednesday, September 19, 201 from 6 – 8 pm

 To recognize individual artists living or working in Queens and to be more inclusive than ever before, JCAL organizes BIG QUEENS DRAWING SHOW. It employs a curatorial framework that allows for the submission of drawings from up to 100 Queens-based artists on the basis of first come, first served. Each artist will be allotted a space up to three-feet square. This is not to celebrate the idea of a multicultural or pluralist melting pot, but to open the door of JCAL’s white-cube gallery by adopting a loosely framed approach of a social network to examine the possibility of institutional critique in today’s technologically advanced society.  The exhibition is neither organized to represent an objective idea, nor to construct a distinctive taste of an aesthetic judgment, but structured as an open platform that may contribute to dismantling the boundaries that stands between the artist community and the rest of society; and that categorizes—and misleadingly identifies—artists by style/-isms, education/schools, and success level/career, and even by ethnic, class, sexual and gender backgrounds. The show is scheduled from September 5 through October 31, 2012.
