No Longer Empty is pleased to present Jameco Exchange, a site-responsive exhibition and socially engaged education platform that revolves around the art of storytelling about a place: Jamaica, Queens. Featuring artworks and performances informed by Jamaica’s global urban setting, Jameco Exchange is inspired by the retail vernacular of the two-story storefront and the cobblestone pedestrian mall in which it is situated, the social culture of Jamaica Avenue, and the histories of Jamaica, Queens, through the lens of collective narrative.
