The New York Mets and Our National Pastime
July 18, 2004 - October 24, 2004

The Queens Museum of Art and the Bronx Museum of the Arts co-present SUBWAY SERIES ®, a dual benchmark exhibition illuminating two of baseball's most storied franchises: the New York Mets and the New York Yankees. The project consists of two separate exhibitions, each conceptually linked to the museums' geographic proximity to the stadiums and directly linked through their shared subway stops with the respective teams.

The New York Mets and Our National Pastime charts the team's transformation over the years, featuring images and objects, art and non-art, as well as works by leading figures in contemporary art addressing the longstanding traditions of baseball. Several new commissioned works, including stadium-based projects, revered memorabilia from private and public collections from around the country, photography, baseball cartoons, and materials documenting key moments in the team's history will be exhibited. Featured artists include Douglas Blau, Janet Cohen, George Corchia, Adam Cvijanovic, Jim Dow, Barbara Ess, Tony Fitzpatrick, Phil Frost, Bill Gallo, Jessica Gandolf, Mariam Ghani, Susan Grayson, Neil Jenney, Lisa Kereszi, Howard Kozlow, Geraldine Lau, Mara Faye Lethem, David Levinthal, Pia Lindman, Willard Mullin, Rubén Ortiz-Torres, Guy Péne du Bois, Michael Rakowitz, Rhoda Shebell, George Sosnak, Kunié Sugiura, William Wegman, and Kehinde Wiley. The exhibitions are curated by Carlo McCormick and Thomas Solomon.

Opening Reception: Sunday, July 18, 2004, 3-6 pm

The Seeing Eye: Art and Industry at the 1964 World's Fair
On view July 18, 2004 - October 24, 2004

In celebration of the 40th Anniversary of the 1964 World's Fair, the Queens Museum of Art presents The Seeing Eye: Art and Industry at the 1964/65 New York World's Fair (July 18 – October 24, 2004), a retrospective focused on the convergence of art and corporate sponsorship in Fair Pavilions. Kodak sponsored one of the most artistically important displays at the Fair - 121 exhibition prints by noted artists including Richard Avedon, Cornell Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, Yousuf Karsh, Dorothea Lange, and Irving Penn, originally shown as Photography as Fine Art: Museum Directors' Selections for the 1965 World's Fair. This exhibition, intended to elevate photography's recognition as fine art, is the core of The Seeing Eye. Models, films, documentary pieces and other works of art associated with the Kodak Pavilion, and the World's Fair as a whole, provide context and reveal the exciting interplay between art and industry that existed, uncovering a crucial element in photography's ascendancy to the realm of fine art.

The Seeing Eye is curated by BBQ Productions' Terri Marlowe and Curtis Cates.

The Red Wall: An Installation by Terence Gower
On view July 18, 2004 - October 24, 2004

Conceptual artist Terence Gower uses the museum's interior ramp to examine how the intensity of the color red affects the way in which people perceive and experience the surrounding architectural elements. Adding further commentary on the interplay between color and architecture is Gower's imagined conversation between artists Donald Judd, Theo Van Doesburg and Le Corbusier on the subject.

The Red Wall is made possible by The Greenwall Foundation, Cowles Charitable Trust, American Center Foundation, and The Lily Auchincloss Foundation.

Inspector Collector's Cool Stuff
On view July 18, 2004 - October 24, 2004

In the ArtZone, Inspector Collector a.k.a. Harley Spiller, celebrates the passion for collecting. Close to a thousands objects from some twenty different collections will be exhibited in the museum's interactive art space. Funky pencils, including some believed to have belonged to George Washington; maps and Chinese menus from across the globe; unusual drinking straws, spoons, and scissors, are just the tip of the Cool Stuff iceberg. In the middle of the gallery will stand the CHOOSEUM, inviting visitors of all ages to create projects. Also, kids can win prizes from our gift shop when they venture a guess about the identity of mystery objects from the collections.

ArtZone, a hands-on artspace for children, is made possible by Emigrant Savings Bank.
