Known most prominently for the panorama of New York City built for the 1964 World's Fair, Raicovich explained that the location of the Queens Museum gives it a unique opportunity to push boundaries in art and engage deeply with the diverse community that makes up the borough.

She said that it was part of the mission of the museum to help express minority voices, even if some think that makes the museum too political.

"Museums have never been neutral. It's always been about the dominant culture," said Raicovich. "We need to upset the apple cart sometimes in order to have the conversations that are really important so that people can get outside of their own worldview and see somebody else's."

Raicovich said artists are really good at achieving that goal, and the Queens Museum is proud to support that philosophy.

Since joining the Queens Museum in January 2015, Raicovich has overseen several major exhibitions including: Hey! Ho! Let's Go - Ramones and the Birth of Punk, Bearing Witness - Drawings by William Gropper and Mierle Laderman Ukeles: Maintenance Art, which runs through February, 2017.
