On Thursday, December 17, at 6:30pm, join Queens Museum President and Executive Director Sally Tallant and Prospect New Orleans Executive Director Nick Stillman as they discuss the upcoming 2021 triennial "Prospect 5 Yesterday we said tomorrow", curated by Artistic Directors Naima J.

On Thursday, December 10, Kenneth Tam and Queens Museum Assistant Curator Sophia Marisa Lucas will join Kyung An, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Assistant Curator, Asian Art, to discuss the virtual premiere of Tam’s film "Silent Spikes" (2020).

In this new work, Tam considers how Asian men have been stereotyped and maligned and uses the figure of the cowboy as a way to re-imagine tropes of American masculinity. Working collaboratively with participants, Tam explores expressions of male subjectivity that resist oppression, and asks, “What might Asian American masculinity look like?”.

To accompany this talk, "Silent Spikes" will be available for viewing December 9–12. This free program will be livestreamed on the Guggenheim’s YouTube channel. RSVP to receive a reminder for this program before it goes live.

Kenneth Tam's forthcoming solo exhibition, "Silent Spikes", will be presented at the Queens Museum in Spring 2021.

In November, we spoke to Aminta Kilawan-Narine, Founder and Director of South Queens Women's March, about the events and vision that moved her to dream up a platform centered on empowering women in Southern Queens.
https://qnsmu.se/QSAmintaKilawanNarine

Since the start of the pandemic, Kilawan-Narine's team has organized various relief efforts to prioritize the safety and wellness of their community members. One of these initiatives, a Period Supply Drive, has helped highlight a rarely talked about impact economic instability has on women: access to sanitary products.

With COVID-19 cases rising again, the most pressing concern Kilawan-Narine sees in South Queens communities - from a gender justice lens - is working class and low income women having to manage child-care while struggling with setting healthy and safe boundaries at home.

Open Call:
Year of Uncertainty (YoU) Queens Museum Partnership Program
Application deadline: January 4, 2021

The Queens Museum is embarking on a “Year of Uncertainty” (YoU), a process to develop new strategies for connectivity in the Museum and with our communities and constituents. Bringing together established and emerging artists, collectives, community organizations, and specialists across disciplines, the Museum will dedicate space and resources to becoming a hub of research, collaboration, and production, opening its public-facing efforts to internal processes, and vice versa. This experimental model will be centered around themes of Care, Repair, Play, Justice, and The Future.

Queens Museum YoU Partnership Program is a 12-month-long program where community organizations are invited to become a part of the fabric of the Museum. These organizations will work with the Museum’s team, artists, and communities to reimagine how the institution can be relevant locally and internationally. Community Partners will play a key role during the YoU to center the creative, organizing, and advocacy work of their communities in relation to this shared investigation of what a museum can be.

Community Partners will be provided with a budget for their participation in the YoU and to support the production of a community driven project, initiative, or campaign, taking place at the Museum and/or across Queens.

A few weeks ago, we spoke to Kim Calichio, trained chef and founder of The Connected Chef, about relief programs responding to the massive increase in food insecurity.
https://qnsmu.se/QSKimCalichio

Launched in response to the pandemic and operating outside of established channels, Kim's food distribution program for Western Queens has been built with the volunteer support of Astoria Mutual Aid Network and through direct relationships with local farmers.

Recently they launched Community Based Groceries Packages as a long-term solution to organizing equitable and resilient local food supply chains. Queens residents can order bountiful boxes of local produce weekly on a sliding scale, while directly supporting the local economy and food security for our communities. Add-ons from local businesses include Hellgate Farm's hot sauce and Bench Flour Bakers' fresh breads!

Now streaming on YouTube: "From 'Touch Sanitation' (1979-1980) to 'For ⟶ forever…' (2020): Two Works by Mierle Laderman Ukeles Respond to a City in Crisis"

In partnership with the The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation, artist Mierle Laderman Ukeles, SDRF Executive and Artistic Director Sara Reisman, and Queens Museum Executive Director Sally Tallant discuss the eerie connection between two NYC crises: the fiscal crisis of the 1970’s and the COVID-19 crisis.

The response to these crises is what binds and fuels Ukeles’ Touch Sanitation (1979-1980); her current three-part public art installation "For ⟶ forever…" with Queens Museum, Times Square Arts, and MTA Arts & Design; as well as her participation in the Foundation’s current exhibition "To Cast Too Bold A Shadow".
