Experience special artist performances, see video screenings from community members, meet the Queens Museum's artists-in-residence, and take a peek at work in progress during open studios. Plus there will be a free shuttle from the Mets-Willets Point 7-train subway station running from 1:30–5:30pm. The Wandering Lake, 2009-2017 is an exhibition by American artist Patty Chang, comprising a personal, associative, and narrative meditation on mourning, caregiving, geopolitics and landscape. Drawing inspiration from The Wandering Lake: Into the Heart of Asia (1938), a book by turn-of-the-century colonial explorer Sven Hedin about a mysterious lake in a perpetual state of flux in the desert of Western China, Chang explores how the instability of geography can mirror and rupture our sense of reality, place, and self. The exhibition presents an experimental form of storytelling through a combination of video, photography, sculpture, drawing, and an artist's book, that examines the way narratives develop through geography, history, mythology, fiction and personal experience. The Queens Museum invites you to step into an alternate Gotham where the boldest, most daring, and most far-reaching urban designs are realized. Curated by Sam Lubell and Greg Goldin, and designed by Christian Wassmann, Never Built New York presents 200 years of visionary architectural and urban designs that never came to be, all brought to life for the first time with original drawings, renderings, newly commissioned models, and 3D visualizations. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=248047 Queens Museum Queens Museum
