UltraViolet Archive at Queens Museum

img_3046

As a nomadic project and event space, UltraViolet Archive provides visibility for and access to challenged creative works. Named after the wavelengths of light outside the visible spectrum, the material featured within this archive has faced the threat of public invisibility, due to banning, cultural amnesia, bias, self-censorship, and other challenges. By featuring visual arts, literature, films, graphic novels, music and performing arts, the installation highlights that no medium is immune to censorship.

Curated by Christina FreemanEmireth Herrera and moira williams.

The exhibition continues at the Queens Museum, October 28 to December 2. Performances and walks will take place October 28, November 11 and December 2.

S.T.E.P… embraces the many ways and bodies we walk while asking how walking as a creative act can challenge notions and open conversations around visibility, gender, labor, exploration, counter mapping, colonialism, feminism, motherhood, contesting borders, community building, calling out gentrification, street harassment, (dis)ability, carbon debt, who sets the pace and measurement of the world, to the power of dreams and our entanglements between all of these and one another.
