Well Behaved

Expectations, Socialization & Gender

On View: August 4-28

 

Well Behaved is an analysis of society, gender, and the ways in which we navigate these social constructs or reject them all together. 
 
Gender plays a significant role in opportunity, lifestyle, and livelihood of which every individual experiences uniquely. Despite society’s preconceived notion that gender should be dichotomous, many exist inside, outside, and in-between. Join Culture Lab LIC as we explore the construction and deconstruction of such normative standards in this exhibition.

The 37 diverse artists explore the narrative in this exhibition. Works featured range from fine art, installation, holographic, and video. 
 
Curated by Emily Addison, CM Cancel, and Tess Howsam.

Workshop

June 2, 6-9pm

If you don't know what this looks like, come and find out.

 

No experience in art-making of any kind is needed. Please bring water and wear comfortable clothes for movement.

While some fairs focus on a specific type of artwork, such as photography, prints, or contemporary art, Culture Lab LIC will show a high quality mix of work. Come meet artists, socialize with the art community, and have a good time!

THE WORM AT THE CORE
curated by Joshua Chiet
On View: March 31 - April 24
Opening Reception: April 2, 6-9pm
Worm Caitlin (Instagram Post).jpeg

Stemming from the works of American anthropologist Ernest Becker and Austrian psychoanalyst Otto Rank, and proposed by American social psychologists Jeff Greenberg, Sheldon Solomon, and Tom Pyszczynski, Terror Management Theory seeks to understand the basic psychological conflict in human beings arising from our unique awareness of the inevitibility of our own mortality coupled with our innate sense of self-preservation. This dissonance results in a constant potential for existential terror which is managed by an anxiety-buffering system consisting of shared culture, individual self-esteem, and close interpersonal relationships imparting a sense that one is a person of value living in a meaningful world.

While the management of this terror can often lead to defensive distortions of reality and the aggressive protection of one’s beliefs and self-esteem, consciously confronted death anxiety can be a gateway for positivity. As Apple founder Steve Jobs said in his 2005 Stanford University commencement address, "Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

Itinerant Eyes

An Installation by
Tamana Araki

On view: March 3-27
Opening Reception: March 5, 6-8pm

RSVP for free tickets

Itinerant Eyes:  Pairs of round Mirrors project moving reflections of lights on the walls. When Tamana Araki lived in San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas where many Mayan indigenous people live, it inspired her to create these mirrors-like eyes, spirits. Indigenous people believe that animals and nature have spirits.

Cages: An image of a cage came to her mind during the Covid pandemic lockdown. Araki has been exploring the theme of “Immigration” since 2019.  The former president’s administration’s action to separate immigrant families at the border and put them in detention centers, impacted her deeply as a mother who lived in Mexico for four and half years. A cage evokes containment and the structure of the border fence. Araki has travelled to El Paso, Texas and Ciudad de Juárez, Mexico to cross the U.S-Mexico border on foot. The sands that she collected at the both sides of the border was mixed into ceramic clay in the process of making the cages. All cages have an opening. Her experience of raising silkworm, observing the emergence of silk worm moths from the cocoon made an impact on the creation of this work.

"Migratory animals do not belong to countries. Humans divide the land by drawing the border. Sometimes national borders separate and contain. No one should threaten the lives of others as they cross the border."Tamana Araki /荒木珠奈

Tamana Araki /荒木珠奈 was born in Japan and studied art in Japan and Mexico. In 2012 she moved to New York, lives and now works in Long Island City, NY. Araki works in installations, etchings and small sculptures. She has had shows in galleries and museums in Japan, Mexico, Finland, Canada and the U.S.A.

This exhibition is about the multitudes of blackness. The breadth and depth of blackness, and in some cases not about it at all. This body of work is the bold, brazen, and a truly individual commentary of artists from all walks of life.

"Exploring the language and uses of photography, my work addresses the overlooked or hidden aspects of nature and the built environment. The cameraless technique I use, the photogram process, is associated with the early stages of photographic exploration and invention, a time of wonder at the possibilities of photography as a way of recording the world. The resulting images recall early botanical and medical prints, as well as contemporary architectural and scientific imaging such as blueprints, x-rays and scans." - Mary Pinto

This is a photography based exhibition that explores the different technical methods of creating a photo impression. All techniques (except digital & analogue ) were allowed. This included, tintype, cyanotype, image transfers, chemigrams, albumen, bromoil, collage, and salt prints. We have a variety of printed surfaces that were used for printing, including fabric, metal, glass, wood, and even old dresses.

This international open call drew 200 entries, and 72 artists were selected based on creativity as well as variety. Artists from Argentina, Chile, Spain, France, The Netherlands, Germany, England, Scotland, Italy, and from 12 states are included in our show. But the largest group is from the NYC area, where the plethora of creative artists is most accessible to us at Culture Lab LIC.

This has been a time of re-evaluation for many artists, of a chance to experiment, perhaps, and create imagery reflective of the stressful past year. Artists are naturally gifted with the ability to visualize their thoughts and feelings and to communicate them without words.  We are pleased to present to the public this diverse and creative body of work by our members.

PRIDE : A celebration of diversity, identity, and history

June 3 - July 25, 2021 at the Plaxall Gallery

In creating this exhibit, the word Pride was used as a base for inspiration and interpretation. It was designed to be taken literally, conceptually or theoretically. We chose strong, personal work that addresses the issues being discussed today, as well as projects that frame the historical struggles of the LGBTQ+ community and its increasing acceptance into the ever changing mainstream.

 

This dynamic group of visual artists mostly come from the New York City area, but also from across the country, as well as from Argentina, Taiwan, Cuba, Spain, Venezuela and India.

 

It is a true representation of the diversity we strive for in our Queens community, and to a wider, more altruistic extent, in our country.
