Yuka reminded me that Queens International 4 is approaching….tomorrow! The art show celebrates the diversity of queens, supposedly the most diverse county in the nation, with immigrants comprising roughly 50% of the residents. There are 2 Japanese artists (well, one is a group) participating; Yasue Maetake and Okamoto Studio. But I’m particularly looking forward to Ms. Maetake’s theatrical sculptures about nature, humans and coexistence.
Here are some shots from a show she did in NY 2 years ago at the Harris Lieberman Gallery. (photos courtesy of Harris Lieberman Gallery)
Okamoto Studio is an ice sculpture practice based in NY. I’m not sure what kind of work will be on display, but that should be interesting as well!
The show will be on view for 3 months at the Queens Museum.
