QAI 2017 Call for Submissions 

RPGA Studio is now accepting submissions for Queens Art Intervention 2017.


Because there is so much going on around what we call home (homelessness, refugee, housing, tiny living...), RPGA Studio is introducing Dwelling as our QAI theme this year. It could be architectural, an art performance, visual installation, photographic project. It's all up to you! There are many ways to interpret Dwelling. We look forward to your creativity.
