MIERLE LADERMAN UKELES: FOR → FOREVER…

—–

The Queens Museum, Times Square Arts, and MTA Arts & Design are excited to announce our collaboration on a new three-part public art initiative by artist Mierle Laderman Ukeles, on view on the facade of the Queens Museum facing Grand Central Parkway, on the large-scale digital billboard at 20 Times Square, and across digital displays throughout the MTA subway and rail system. For ⟶ forever… is both a response to the pandemic and a continuation of Ukeles’ long-standing dedication to honoring the unending labor of New York City’s public service workers through her artistic practice. The artwork is viewable throughout a network of locations designed to reach New York City’s public service workers – from transit and sanitation workers in Times Square to essential workers continuing their daily commute.

ULRIKE MÜLLER AND AMY ZION: THE CONFERENCE OF THE ANIMALS
September 16, 2020 to January 17, 2021
—–

The Conference of the Animals consists of a mural by artist Ulrike Müller and an exhibition of children’s drawings by independent curator Amy Zion. While working on her proposal for the mural and thinking about the psychology of scale, Müller became interested in drawings by children as an extension of her work. She invited curator Amy Zion to realize an exhibition of works by children from 1900 to today in the adjoining gallery. Both the exhibition and mural are site-specific projects that hug the 45-foot-high wall that encircles The Panorama of the City of New York, and refer to the building’s history as host to the United Nations from 1946-50. After this season, the mural will remain as part of the Museum’s Large Wall series.

La conferencia de los animales consta de un mural de la artista Ulrike Müller y una exposición de dibujos de niñxs a cargo de la comisaria independiente Amy Zion. Mientras trabajaba en su propuesta para el mural y reflexionaba acerca de la psicología de la escala, Müller comenzó a interesarse en los dibujos infantiles como extensión de su trabajo. Invitó a la comisaria Amy Zion a organizar una exposición de obras de niñxs de 1900 hasta la fecha en la galería adyacente. Tanto la exposición como el mural son proyectos adaptados a su ubicación que se desarrollan en el muro de 45 pies (14 m) que rodea el Panorama de la Ciudad de Nueva York y que hacen referencia a la historia del edificio como sede de las Naciones Unidas de 1946 a 1950.
