The new exhibition at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, El real viaje Real / The Real Royal Trip, makes reference to Columbus's fourth transatlantic journey, which brought disease and conflict to the New World. The exhibition is conceived as the 'real transcultural exchange trip,' a celebration of art, pleasure and adventure. Featured are twenty-two contemporary artists from Spain, Columbus's embarkation point, and from the countries that he explored. Thirteen of these artists have never before exhibited in the United States.
Seating for the symposium is limited. Tickets are free to all, but are required to enter and can be picked up in person at the MoMA QNS Lobby Ticketing Desk, 33 Street at Queens Boulevard, Long Island City, and at the Visitor Center at the MoMA Design Store, 44 West 53 Street, Manhattan.
