Visual Arts alumni are featured at the Queens Museum of Arts biennial titled, Queens International 2012 : Three Points Make a Triangle
In the fifth iteration of its biennial, the 2012 edition features 31 artists based in established and upcoming art hubs in Queens and comprise a multi-national and cross-generational group. The exhibition’s subtitle originates with French Surrealist René Daumal’s unfinished novel Mount Analogue (1944), in which eight explorers use scientific knowledge and metaphysical powers to search for a magical mountain invisible to the human eye. In this spirit, Queens International 2012 explores a rich range of media and practice, many of the artists working in forms of abstraction and collage, with others telling fantastical stories that layer the here and now with other spaces and times. Together, they seem to be combining the rational and the emotional, searching for worlds beyond our own, from the midst of a daily life permeated by information technology.
