ArtBuilt, Studio in the Park: Chance Ecologies: Flushing River

July 1, 2016 to August 15, 2016
Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens

Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.


Chance Ecologies: Flushing River is the third residency of the Studio in the Park program at the Queens Museum. Led by curators Catherine Grau and Nathan Kensinger, this project will create an in-depth exploration of the entirety of the Flushing River during a six-week residency, using the mobile studio as a research hub and community engagement space. Artists from Chance Ecologies will engage in a series of week-long mini residencies at the studio space, and lead weekly public events based out of the studio, which will include performative walks, ecological field trips, canoe paddles, and historic and scientific investigations connecting the source of the Flushing River in the park to its mouth in the Flushing Bay.

The Studio in the Park residency takes place in a 150 square foot purpose-built mobile studio situated adjacent to the Queens Museum in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. The activities of Chance Ecologies will accumulate into an evolving archive of artistic research that will be visually represented both inside and outside the mobile studio, and will be accessible to visitors during regular daytime hours. Chance Ecologies: Flushing River will culminate in a daylong series of public events centered around the studio space, a publication of the research realized during the residency, and the exhibition of resulting new works at the Queens Museum in October.

This exhibition is presented by ArtBuilt and the Queens Museum. For more information about programming and hours, please visit
