Queens Museum, New York, 03/02/21 - 03/02/21
Exhibition: Mundos Alternos: Art and Science Fiction in the Americas
Organized into thematic “constellations”, this exhibition brings together artists from throughout the Caribbean, continental Latin America, and the United States who have tapped into science fiction’s capacity to imagine new realities. Mundos Alternos in Queens is particularly salient, considering the vicinity of the past New York World’s Fairs to the museum, as well as the current dialogue around immigrant futures. This iteration expands with satellite programming throughout New York City, including at Sugar Hill Children’s Museum of Art & Storytelling (Harlem); The New York Hall of Science; the Museum of the Moving Image; and the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art. Organized by Hitomi Iwasaki and Joanna Szupinska-Myers.
