This Sunday, April 9th, from 3-6pm is the official opening of the exhibition Commonwealth: Water for All at the Queens Museum, in Corona, Queens, NYC.

The show is installed on the walls surrounding a 3-dimensional scale model of the New York City watershed (originally created for the 1939 World’s Fair) and is composed of four parts:

—The Justseeds Wellspring portfolio
—Selections from the Justseeds/CultureStrike We Are the Storm portfolio
—An installation of No DAPL posters and protest ephemera from the collection of Interference Archive. Artists include Jesus Barraza, Christi Belcourt, Kyle Goan, Nicolas Lampert, Dylan Miner, Isaac Murdoch, Oasis Skateboard Co.’s Native Sk8 Class, Jesse Purcell, Sadie Redwing, and Ernesto Yerena.
