The works, done by Astoria resident and artist Christine Wong Yap, explore the themes of uncertainty, and “the disassembled self on the eve of re-organization.” The artist is fascinated with internal experiences that precede language, thought, response, and action. In past works, Yap explored happiness and positive psychology; “The Eve Of…” represents a shift in direction towards disruptive emotional states and poetic associations. The exhibit closes with a public forum featuring guest speaker Andria Hickey, Associate Curator at the Public Art Fund, on Wednesday, Sept. 24, from 7 to 9 p.m. All events are free, open to the public, and wheelchair accessible.
