This event has ended.

To recognize individual artists living or working in Queens and to be more inclusive than ever before, JCAL has organized BIG QUEENS DRAWING SHOW. It employed a curatorial framework that allowed for the submission of drawings from Queens-based artists on the basis of first come, first served. Total 70 artists have responded to the call for submission within a three-week period. Each artist is allotted a space up to three-feet square. This is not to celebrate the idea of a multicultural or pluralist melting pot, but to open the door of JCAL’s white-cube gallery by adopting a loosely framed approach of a social network to examine the possibility of institutional critique in today’s technologically advanced society. The exhibition is neither organized to represent an objective idea, nor to construct a distinctive taste of an aesthetic judgment, but structured as an open platform that may contribute to dismantling the boundaries that stands between the artist community and the rest of society; and that categorizes—and misleadingly identifies—artists by style/-isms, education/schools, and success level/career, and even by ethnic, class, sexual and gender backgrounds.
