9. The Socrates Annual 2017 at Socrates Sculpture Garden
The Socrates Annual is currently on view at Socrates Sculpture Garden. Formerly known as The Emerging Artist Fellowship Exhibition, The Socrates Annual is a group presentation of public work addressing “the most urgent issues of today.” Included in the body of work that includes 15 distinct sculptures are “A Failed Presidential Amusement Park,” a “Potus, 2017” insignia sculpture made of tile, and “Only One Way“, a skewed sign of the “good ol’ boys” thumbs up, which references the advertising slogan of Mumbai’s Trump Tower.
The 2017 Socrates Annual will be on view through March 11, 2018 at Socrates Sculpture Park, 32-01 Vernon Boulevard in Long Island City. You can now reach Socrates Sculpture Garden by ferry, which leaves your five-minutes away.
