Site-Specific Art in Corona Plaza

QUEENS, N.Y.- The Queens Museum of Art has commissioned four emerging artists to produce temporary site-specific art in Corona Plaza (Roosevelt Avenue between 104th and National Streets) just a few blocks away from the museum’s home, Flushing Meadows Corona Park. The projects are part of a larger Heart of Corona initiative in which the museum and community partners work towards improving the health of community residents, beautifying the neighborhood, and activating public spaces in the area. The artists—Hector Canonge, Stephanie Diamond, Shaun El C. Leonardo and Xaviera Simmons—were asked to develop projects that would integrate with the specific conditions of the plaza and Corona, resulting in works that, like much contemporary artistic practice, values audience participation, fun, generosity and community engagement. Separately, their works engage in a dialogue about what it means to be American in a neighborhood where over 65% of residents are foreign born, and in a nation where the subject of immigration is a hotly contested political battleground. The installation at the Queens Museum of Art describes, documents and expands on the projects and activities in the plaza. Corona Plaza, Center of Everywhere will be on view at the Museum from June 10 – October 14, 2007 and at Corona Plaza from July 1 – October 14, 200 .
