No Longer Empty Curatorial Lab and York College Fine Arts Gallery are pleased to present the inaugural Southeast Queens Biennial: A Locus of Moving Points.

In its inaugural year, the Southeast Queens Biennial identifies movement as an organizing principle for understanding Southeast Queens as a gateway for travel and a source of cultural production and exchange deeply rooted in its immigrant communities.

This concept finds its roots in the writing of bell hooks, a visionary feminist activist and author, who speaks to the transformative potential of shifting one’s focus to consider the margin and center not as disparate parts, but as making up a whole body.

Locus, from the Latin for “location” or “place,” is used in geometry to refer to a set of points that meet a given condition. Combined, these concepts suggest an active way of seeing that dismantles the notion of a dominant center by shifting perceptions of what makes up both center and periphery.

A Locus of Moving Points features the work of three generations of artists and cultural producers with deep connections to Southeast Queens. On view at York College: Damali Abrams the Glitter Princess, Natali S. Bravo-Barbee, Janet Henry, Rejin Leys, Sana Musasama, Shervone Neckles, Odathrowback, Okechukwu Okegrass Ofiaeli, and Elizabeth Velazquez.

Dr. Margaret Rose Vendryes, Chair of the Performing and Fine Arts Department and Gallery Director at York College, remarks on the importance of the gallery to Southeast Queens: “The Fine Arts Gallery at York College is one of only two professional visual art exhibition venues in Southeast Queens.

As a vibrant part of what the York College Department of Performing and Fine Arts has to offer both town and gown communities, the Southeast Queens Biennial will create valuable new connections.” The inaugural Southeast Queens Biennial was organized by No Longer Empty’s 2017 NLE Curatorial Lab in partnership with York College Fine Arts Gallery, and is curated by Sarah Fritchey, Corrine Y. Gordon, Rebecca Pristoop, Niama Safia Sandy and Anastasia Tuazon.
