Midday Art Break

At the Self-Taught Genius Gallery
Long Island City, Queens

Join us at the Self-Taught Genius Gallery in Long Island City over your noon break for a free tour of Roadside Attraction with the exhibition’s curator, Sarah Margolis-Pineo.

Drawn from the collection of American Folk Art Museum, Roadside Attraction evokes the spirit of a cabinet of curiosity for the automobile age. Tradeshow signs, circus banners, and miniatures are exhibited alongside artworks illustrating the paranormal, fantastic, and carnivalesque. Highlighting works created within artist-built environments, this exhibition examines the relationship between curiosity and entertainment, illuminating the ways they interweave to make space for extraordinary ideas and other worlds.
