Organized by the Critical, Curatorial and Conceptual Practices in Architecture Program and moderated by Felicity Scott, this is the first installment of the monthly series “Where is New York?*”

In summer 2011, acclaimed performance artist Tania Brugera relocated to Corona, Queens, where she operates the non-profit Immigrant Movement International at Corona Studio, a space at 108-59 Roosevelt Avenue that is jointly sponsored by Creative Time and the Queens Museum of Art to organize classes, workshops, and public actions that address and highlight the needs of those who live nearby. This conversation on institutions and immigration in New York’s famously diverse borough will be joined by Queens Museum of Art Curator Larissa Harris and Director of Events Prerana Reddy, who have advocated for change in nearby Corona Plaza as part of the museum’s extraordinary array of community-based public programming.

* Each month, one program at GSAPP will identify a site within the five boroughs that has been important to their discipline within the past year and bring designers, policymakers, developers, community activists, and other New Yorkers together to discuss the site and question where we are.
