Costa Rica: El Ministerio de Cultura
In San Jose, on a fellowship from the Rockefeller Flow Fund to curate an exhibition of children's art as part of the First Conference of Women for the Abolition Armies in Central America.
you will never guess what happened to me today.
i was hanging work at the ministry of culture (artwork by young people from 7 countries) for the conference), a beautiful historic European beer distillary converted into galleries, the Museum of Contemporary Art, a dance institute and performing arts venue.
it was so funny. i would put things up, and then turn my back--and when i turned around everything was undone!
in the meantime, all these bodies were running around--preparing for an avante garde sound performance by an argentinian artist in the adjoining room.
finally, we realized they had double booked the spaces.
well, it all worked out. but guess who they booked almost the entire compound along with us?
FADAU-1er Festival Abierto de Danza & Arte Urbano.
they invited me to participate in the international graffiti piece on sunday. needless to say, everything's coming together in the most incredible way.
