Yvonne Shortt with Jenna Boldebuck, Mayuko Fujino and Joel Esquite, Rigged

July 10, 2019 to July 9, 2020
MacDonald Park, Queens

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


Rigged is a visual commentary on our social, political, and economic systems. It asks viewers to investigate such systems with the installation’s series rabbits and carrots placed on a 3-dimensional maze. The maze has windows that provide a glimpse inside the maze structure, along with a series of staircases that lead from one level to the next, yet there is no perceptible entrance or exit point. The maze was designed by the arts non-profit RPGA Studio, Inc., and the community was invited to design the rabbit/carrot sculptures.

This exhibition is presented by RPGA Studio, Inc. and Friends of MacDonald Park.
