Thank you again for your time and help!!
So I met a curator from CIIS, California Institute of Integral Study, at SPE this year and I was asked if I wanted to have a solo show with Tomiko Jones. (I really not sure if I would call it a solo show since I’m collaborating, but they called it a Solo…)
They sent me a pdf version of postcard and links to their website and fb page which I attached to this e-mail.
CIIS website with the detail of the show
As it says on the postcard,
The show will be up on September 20 – November 17, 2015
Also they are paying me to fly to San Francisco to give an artist talk/round table discussion on October 22, 2015
The show contains two of my works which are,
Nikon International Photo contest:
I also recieved 2nd place in Nikon International Photo contest (video section)
I received $2000 worth of Nikon equipment, and they are planning to have a group show in major cities like, Tokyo, Osaka, Shanghai, and Beijing.
Featured on a documentary TV made by RCC (Hiroshima/Chugoku TV):
I was visiting Hiroshima, Japan this summer to research about my grandfather.
my on-going project, Sungazing, deals with the experience of A-bomb my grandfather experienced in Hiroshima.
One of the people I met in Hiroshima was a TV director who was interested to make a documentary of my research on my grandfather in Hiroshima. They made a 30 min documentary show that was aired in Hiroshima on 5th August 2015, which is a day before the Atomic Bomb day.
I thought it would be interesting to share it with you since they mentioned about MICA while they introduce me in the documentary.
I have a copy of the video but it’s all in Japanese.
Sorry for this wall of words, the show in San Francisco is one that most important right now and I would appreciate if you can help me get more exposure on the show!!
Hope we can have one to one meeting again soon.
