Various Artists, The Socrates Annual
October 1, 2017 to March 11, 2018
Socrates Sculpture Park, Queens
Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.
A failed Presidential amusement park, 18th century Chippendale and Queen Anne design motifs, mobile home landscape and architecture, and New York City’s urban soccer leagues are among the points of departure for the 15 distinct artist projects selected for The Socrates Annual, formerly known as The Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition. The Socrates Annual is an annual exhibition of new public art that addresses the most urgent issues of today. It is distinct in its mission to foster individual artist projects rather than present an overarching theme.
