I just returned from a month in Java. I went back with the help of a small grant, really hoping to finish up some lingering projects. I was also trying to get some new things started.
Amongst my new projects, I am now working in collaboration with Alia Sawastika, a young curator at the Ark Gallery in Yogyakarta. Together we are working to organize a 1-2 night screening of contemporary video and film art from Java here in the States. This screening will coincide with an exhibition on contemporary fine art photography from Java I am organizing for the Johnson Museum. If all goes as planned, the video screenings will air at Cornell, the Eastman Museum, and the Massachusetts College of Art. I hope to have more information on this project to post soon.
