Stay, create and present in Tokyo with 3331 Arts Chiyoda's residence program
Residence Period: 2017.02.07-2017.04.03
"During AIR 3331, I intend to deepen my curatorial, art historical and organizational research, related to my mission of creating cross-cultural dialogue, and new opportunities for contemporary artists in Japan to have critical engagement. This will be done by utilizing 3331 Arts Chiyoda as a site for both discussions and presentations that invite the art community within 3331 and the surrounding Tokyo area more widely, into the Nishikicho Studio to connect with each other and with new ideas."
Base of activity: Portland, OR; Tokyo, Japan; New York, NY
