#InTheLoop | New Godwin-Ternbach Museum Exhibition Explores ‘Migrations’
BY QEDC It's In Queens
Four Queens College departments ─ Drama, Theatre & Dance; Art; Economics; and Sociology ─ have joined forces to present Migrations: A Study of Arts & Identity at the Godwin-Ternbach Museum.
On display until Jan. 8, 2022, the exhibition features 71 photographs by Economics Professor Julen Esteban-Pretel documenting four performances of Migrations, a show that QC students presented in 2017. The images depict dancers and choreographers, backstage banter, rehearsals, and performances. Video projections of the shows, costumes, and stage props accompany the photographs.
Plus, Migrations: A Study of Arts & Identity includes 10 large-scale color photographs from Long Island City artist Orestes Gonzalez’s Disruption series, which documented the complexity and hardship of immigrant stories.
Attendance is free. Godwin-Ternbach Museum, which is at 405 Klapper Hall on campus, is open from Monday to Thursday from 10 am to 5 pm and on Friday by appointment.
