Mel Chin: All Over the Place is the conceptual artist’s first survey organized by a New York City institution. Co-produced by the Queens Museum and No Longer Empty.

About

All Over the Place features more than 70 works by conceptual artist Mel Chin, spanning his nearly four decades of artistic practice. The exhibition will extend out from the Queens Museum to a number of sites in New York City including Times Square, and the Broadway-Lafayette subway station, and premiere four ambitious commissions: Flint Fit, Soundtrack, Unmoored, and Wake. Chin’s extraordinary range of artistic approaches and unusual use of media allows his work to be malleable and defy classification. Environmental injustice, history, cartography and ecology are some of the disciplines that intersect in Chin’s politically charged work that investigates how art can promote social awareness and animate representation; and how collaborative teamwork can posit community-based solutions to ecological and socio-political crises.
