Twelve painted portraits of Chairman Mao Zedong arranged in a grid of four by three. Each portrait captures his likeness but something about each representation is distorted. Features appear in the wrong place, are fragmented, he is interacting with an object in the composition, or has a new feature like a mustache, animal ears, and pigtails.
A black and white side profile photograph of a White woman against a plain backdrop. The woman occupies the left side of the frame. Her gaze is down and one hand up is squeezing her shoulder. Her hair is dark, full, wavy and brushed back. She has a couple freckles on her cheek, a nose ring, and a lip piercing.
An illustration of a long, skinny, wooden table that stretches the entire composition. Seated in the center is the Dalai Lama attended by 6 monks on each side. His center position is reemphasized by their gazes. The illustration is textured by tiny stippling. Behind the monks, dressed in colorful garb, is a golden yellow structure filled with tiny statues of deities.
A sculpture of a Hindu deity draped in seaweed, seated on a sandy beach. In the background clumps of seaweed and trash cover the sand until the horizon breaks into blue sky.
A sculpture installation on a grayish-brown exhibition floor. The installation is made up of construction materials including thin pieces of wood, a concrete wall, metal pipes and fencing. The materials are loosely linked together to create uncontained spaces and walkways.
The entrance to the Queens Museum against a blue, day-time sky. “Queens Museum” is spelled out in silver signage across the top of the building. Hanging below the sign and above the front doors is a color photograph portrait of a Chinese man. He is posing against a white backdrop and wearing a white button up.
A color photograph of a pavilion shaped like an engine. Notably there is a giant, white, propeller on the front side of the building. Down at the street is a crowd of visitors.
A black and white photograph of Louis Armstrong cheesin’ his pearly whites. His gaze is towards another camera lens. Behind him is a row of police officers. Together, with a crowd of onlookers, they are captured standing. While the police officers are on the curb, Louie is crouching up out of a parked convertible, filled with seated passengers.
An abstract illustration of a cityscape. Emerging from the center of a skyline, city traffic drives out from the base of a religious deity’s neck. The deity has blue hair and is half human, half mechanical. Its earlobes droop down to where its shoulders would be, by the weight of earrings made out of a Home Depot, and Best Buy sign. Pink, blue, and green clouds and white zigzags line the road filled with cars and yellow taxis.
An exhibition room with a giant sculpture of a male head on a black stand. The sculpture is black with large specs of color marbled in. Behind the sculpture is a wooden bench, placed in front of two framed illustrations of the same head in black.
A dome like spherical model with curved lattice work on the roof and a horizontal wave like structure through the middle. Jutting out from the middle of the sphere are two walkways. The base of the sphere has grass, trees and three figurines walking around.
