Nonstop Metropolis: The Remix



We are thrilled to announce a series of new artworks and public programs entitled, Nonstop Metropolis: The Remix. Organized on the occasion of the release of Rebecca Solnit and Joshua Jelly-Schapiro’s forthcoming New York City Atlas, Nonstop Metropolis, the Queens Museum’s “Remix” takes inspiration from the book’s maps and essays. The New York City Atlas is the third in Solnit’s series, following Atlases for New Orleans and San Francisco. With our very own, one-of-a-kind, 3-D map here at the Museum—the Panorama of the City of New York—as well as a deep commitment to the many issues Solnit raises in her books, the Queens Museum has commissioned two new projects by New York-based artists Duke Riley and Mariam Ghani in anticipation of the book’s launch at the Museum.

We would love you to be a part of this very special project that is ALL ABOUT New York City! To ensure that we create the most exciting experiences possible, we need your support to raise the final $30,000 necessary to complete the artworks and make the public programs a reality. This project is a celebration of New York City and the many stories that make it one of the most unique cities in the world. Your participation will support the realization of the installations by Duke Riley and Mariam Ghani as well as the series of public events. And, in keeping with the Queens Museum’s commitment to engaging the broader public in our projects, you will also help us provide prints of the maps from Nonstop Metropolis free of charge to all those who visit the Museum. If you love NYC as much as we do, join us in bringing this remarkable project to the public.
