The Queens Memory Project collects personal histories, photographs, and other records of contemporary life in Queens, New York.  In connection with the Queens Memory Project, LIC: Present is the first in a series of exhibitions that explores memory and the archival process, in our new normal.  The project will document our local community in the "now," with a focus on how LIC artists are shaping the new decade.  2020 has been a tumultuous year, and it is not over yet!  Artists are being bombarded with input and are actively archiving history in their unique ways.  One component of the overall project is this juried online art exhibition Artists Navigating 2020 which will be a permanent part of the Queens Library archives.

All Long Island City-based artists are encouraged to submit up to five images of any artwork you have created during 2020, including paintings, drawings, sculpture, video art, photography, collage, etc.  Submissions to the exhibition will be juried by representatives of LiC-A and Culture Lab LIC.  Although the Plaxall Gallery is currently closed due to the pandemic, at some point in the future it may be possible for LiC-A and Culture Lab LIC to install an exhibition of these works, so please consider that when deciding on your submissions.

There is no submission fee for this Online Exhibition. However, this is a juried show, so submitting work does not guarantee selection for the show. Artwork will need to be in digital form and submitted by this online form only. All submissions must be received by midnight on the date of the deadline.
