Queens International 2018
57th Carnegie International Catalogue Launch and Closing Events
Feb 24 2019
Join us for the closing event of Queens International 2018: Volumes, including artist performances and the launch of the 57th Carnegie International catalogue – to which Queens International 2018 curator Sophia Marisa Lucas and Queens Museum curator Larissa Harris contributed to a conversation about the notion of “international” with the Carnegie team.
This day of programs at Queens Museum will also include the culminating performance for Fel Santos: I of Newtown, a multimedia installation by poet Paolo Javier (former Queens Poet Laureate, 2010-14) and musician David Mason (also known as Listening Center) for the Queens Library LeFrak City branch that explores the sound poetry and elusive identity of Woodside poet Fel Santos.
Javier and Mason’s installation at LeFrak focuses on the expansive sound poetry of Fel Santos, which draws from his immigrant Pilipinx history, encounters with the occult, and his mother’s own private language. Spanning film, video, sound poetry, and music, Fel Santos: I of Newtown shares the abundant intimacy and innovation of language and communication that is unique to multilingual speakers and postcolonial cultures. This project is on view from November 10, 2018 – February 24, 2019, and the culminating performance will take place at Queens Museum.
