All in the life of a curator?? Two artists we were planning to invite have either won  prizes or special residencies requiring for them to be abroad during the same time as our show- – which unfortunately means that there is a good chance that they won’t be able to make it to Haverford for the opening or artists’ panel. That was some discouraging news but Prof. Solomon didn’t seem too hindered by the obstacle. I guess the hard part about contemporary artists is that their schedules are always changing…

In other news, Prof. Solomon and I received our first proof of our title page back last week! Lots of changes need to be made but very exciting project, nonetheless…

Break is almost over (last semester! gah) and I still have some work looming over me – - texts for the catalogue, images for the catalogue, finalized master lists – ah, and that thesis research I was wisely going to “get done before second semester started.”

Back to writing!

looking for the contemporary of contemporaries?? for the most cutting edge work, art fairs and biennales serve as an oasis for the next big IT. During the preparation for Mapping Identity, it’s been so exciting to see some of our artists participating in some of the most popular and cutting-edge art scenes out there…

Most recently, Gonkar Gyatso was just at Brisbane, Australia for the Asia Pacific Triennial and was at the Venice Biennale over the summer…

Over the summer, the Projects Gallery presented Glenn Kaino and the Edwynn Houk Gallery presented Lalla Essaydi at Art Basel in Miami.

Last spring at in Paris I first learned about Lalla Essaydi and Do-Ho Suh who were both featured at Art Paris under one of my favorite buildings of all time, the Grand Palais…

Around the same time Professor Solomon was at Art Dubai, one of the most exciting and newest art fairs, where she and Zoulikha Bouabdellah were one of three curator/artist teams to receive the first  Abraaj Capital Art Prize for Bouabdellah’s installation “Walk on the Sky.”
