A journey of movement and sound, Sub(Urban) Archives invites us to consider the interplay between memory and migration. From the personal to the collective, how might we move to (re)member? This activation by Katrina Reid, is performed on and around Heather Hart’s rooftop sculpture Oracle of the Twelve Tenses at the Queens Museum.


This 15 minute performance can be attended in-person at Queens Museum or from home via online livestream.


Please note that this event will be capped at 25 attendees. Masks are mandatory for all Queens Museum visitors. Event details are subject to change due to COVID-19 guidelines for our area.
