Queens Museum | October 8-30, 2016

     Hidden Vistas is an artist-made virtual reality scenic viewer that offers experiential glimpses of two liminal urban spaces. In Immersive Landscapes: Hunter's Point South, the artists present views of a now-demolished landscape, as observers travel through a lush, overgrown forrest to a sublime, postindustrial waterfront across from the New York City skyline. Rocky riverbankIn Immersive Landscapes: Flushing River, viewers travel from more formal park spaces to hidden borderlands between industry and nature, coexisting with flora and fauna as planes soar overhead. Hidden Vistas allows viewers to witness and be present in marginal or vanished landscapes they may not otherwise see.

The Chance Ecologies ExhibitionHidden Vistas can be viewed at the Queens Museum until October 30. Sarah Nelson Wright and Edrex Fontanilla will speak about their work at the Queens Museum on October 23, 2016. Additional information about related events will be posted on the museum website.
