Visit Queens Center to discover Pauline Shaw’s newly commissioned vinyl artwork in the mall’s Center Court.
 Shaw employs a variety of craft-based techniques, such as weaving and felting, to create sculptures, textiles, and installations, that examine her own personal history against the backdrop of centuries-old artistic traditions passed down through generations. For her Queens Center commission, she pulled imagery from paper cutouts found in Chinese folk art as well as ancient Chinese wall tapestries currently in museum collections across the United States.

Visite Queens Center y descubra la nueva obra en vinilo de Pauline Shaw en el patio central.
 Shaw utiliza diversas técnicas artesanales, como el tejido y el fieltro, para crear esculturas, telas e instalaciones que analizan su propia historia personal con el telón de fondo de las tradiciones artísticas heredadas de generación en generación durante siglos. El imaginario de este encargo del Queens Center procede de recortes de papel procedentes del arte popular chino, así como de tapices chinos antiguos que se encuentran en colecciones de museos de todo Estados Unidos.
