Thank you all who came out for the ✨🕳 Black Hole Workshop 🕳✨! Come visit the last days of the show and see what transpired during the workshop and the conclusions we came up with.

As part of receiving the 2016 KAFA Award, I'll be sharing some new/ongoing research at the Korean Cultural Center for the exhibition, The longest journey is from our heads to our hearts. The show will expand over the course of two weeks as I/we continually investigate and apply the various methods of identity-collapsing proposed in the show. The exhibition is very text-heavy so come prepared to read! OR you can download this PDF Portfolio and read at your leisure (please open PDF Portfolio in Acrobat 9 or Adobe Reader 9 or later) 📊🔬🚀❣️

BLACK HOLE WORKSHOP
Thursday, November 16, 6–9pm

This is a workshop where we apply the procedures proposed in The longest journey is from our heads to our hearts to stimulate gravitational collapse within intra-actions to form black holes and the impossibility of observation. The data analysis from this workshop will help formulate the conclusion to this experiment. Let's adventure within black holes together! 🖤💞🖤

Gallery hours: Mon-Fri 10am-5pm / Sat 10am-1pm (closed November 25th)

Propositions on Revolution (Slogans for a Future)
Krannert Art Museum, August 31—December 22, 2017

My video, Revolutionizing Revolution, is part of this exhibition organized by Kristin Romberg. If you're near Champaign, Illinois, check it out!

Propositions on Revolution (Slogans for a Future) takes the centennial of the Russian Revolution of 1917 as an occasion to think broadly about revolution. How do radical changes in power and perception come about? Who makes them, or how do they happen?

It adopts a working method employed by early twentieth-century political organizers, who co-authored slogans as a device for developing consciousness of their contemporary situation and consensus about how to move forward. Functioning less as propagandistic directives than as propositions to be picked up and debated, these slogans were intended to be part of an ongoing process of collective self-production.

The exhibition includes works by contemporary artists and collectives Chto Delat’, Tacita Dean, Coco Fusco, Jennifer Moon, Tameka Norris, and The Propeller Group. Each work has been selected for its potential as a starting point for a discussion about a “proposition on revolution.”
