Queens International 2004

The second installment of Queens International attempts to take the pulse of the artistic climate of the nation’s most ethnically diverse locale. Featuring 52 artists and two collaboratives, Queens International 2004 presents a dazzling array of work produced by artists working or living in the borough. Established and emerging artists working in a broad spectrum of tradtional and unorthodox media represent a vital artistic community that is evolving on a daily basis.

Queens International 2004 celebrates the richness of the work born in the borough as well as the artists who create it. Five continents and countless cultures are represented, as are different generations – artists from 24 to 97 years old are featured. The winding paths that have led these artists to the widespread Queens locations in which they currently base their lives are as fascinating as their work. With newly transplanted “”Rent Gypsies”” from the other side of town, those who have come from the other side of the world, and lifelong Queens natives, the complex, shifting artistic profile of the borough mirrors the everyday state of cosmopolitan Queens in the 21st century.

Queens International 2004 is accompanied by a 24-page fully illustrated catalogue that features essays on Queens and the Queens artists, including “Bury My Soul in the Backyard … Here, No, There, No …” by celebrated Manila-born poet, professor and Jackson Heights resident, Luis H. Francia.

Queens International 2004 is made possible by The Lily Auchincloss Foundation, The Greenwall Foundation, American Center Foundation and the Cowles Charitable Fund.
