I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who came out and contributed to the opening of the Locality show, and made it such a success!!! Seriously, the level of work and the number of people that came out to support was better than any of us could have hoped for.  I am hoping to have pictures from the opening up soon. And if you missed out on the opening, or want more of the greatness, come to the closing party, on April 16th, 8pm - 11pm.

Thanks again!!!

China, Korea, and back again

art studio this way

So, it's been awhile since I have posted.  But that is for good reason; I have just recently gotten back from China and Korea, where I went with a class for the Gwangju Biennale, Busan Biennale, Seoul New Media Biennale and Shanghai Biennale.  Our dean, Okwui Enwezor, was the Artistic Director of this year's Gwangju Biennale, so he took it as an opportunity to lead a class in exploring the bourgeoning contemporary art landscape in Asia, with a special focus on spectacle and the incredible number of biennales taking place there.  It was a great trip, much more cultural than the last one I went on with him, and we even found time to go to Beijing and view the aftermath of the Olympics.
