Pack a picnic and meet us at the Unisphere! Landsberg recreated several of the famed monument’s islands at scale and placed them together to form a global archipelago. The islands act as seating, stages, and meeting places, and reflect the diversity Queens. These continents, figuratively stitched together, are recognizable by their shapes, but have neither labels nor borders.

This exhibition was made possible by the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant.

Introduced in September 2016, the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant builds on Parks’ equity initiatives by bringing regular public art exhibits to parks that have historically lacked cultural programming. The $200,000 grant has been issued to a total of 20 artists over the course of two consecutive years, with $100,000 distributed to 10 artists in 2017, and $100,000 issued to another 10 artists this year. Each chosen artist receives $10,000 to execute their pieces. The first round of winning artists installed their pieces in June 2017, and each was on display for one year

Free and open to the public.
