It's that dreaded day that will never be forgotten, but let's make it good today.
Top Five of the Week
1. Seeing artist James Jean in the iPad Pro video from the "Apple Special Event." I blogged it here. 2. Biennale 4 Banner is now up on the Japanese American National Museum building. 3. I was Interviewed by Akira Boch and Lynn Yamasaki for a Biennale 4 video and by Michelle Mills for LA News Group. 4. Rob Sato and Ako Castuera's Deep Fields looks super promising. I'll post photos when I visit their studio this weekend. 5. Catch In Box curated by Audrey Kawasaki, if you're in LA. This exhibition has been a great pleasure to be around.
Upcoming at GR2
a two person show featuring Ako Castuera and Rob Sato September 19 - October 14th, 2015 Reception 6:30-10pm Saturday September 19th, 2015
Ako was 17 and Rob was 19 when they met at CCA(C) in 1996. After a few years of friendship, they confessed their hidden love for one another and theyâ€™ve been together ever since. For nearly two decades, Rob and Ako have built their lives around each other and their art. They share friends, family, creative influences, economic conditions and moments of joy and tragedy which shape their individual, but shared experience. Although they have exhibited in numerous group shows together, Deep Fields represents the first time these partner/artists have had their own split show. Rather than attempt to unify the work in terms of theme or concept, Deep Fields offers a cross section of current work from each respective artist, as well as collaborations that will afford an open ended view of the resonant effect of two artists being shaped and shaping each other over time.
