“The best thing about being an artist is being able to mingle with all kinds of people.” I’m stoked to be in the Fall 2018 issue of the magazine of my beloved grad school alma mater, the Visual Arts Journal of the School of Visual Arts NYC about my art residencies and speaking engagements around the world. A sure sign of old age.
Together with other international students and scholars from The Fulbright Program, the article, “Global Warming”, is written by Alexander Gelfand (pp 20-23) and I talk mostly about how I’ve adapted to many places around the world (TLDR: take care of your mental health, have a healthy diet, exercise, and make friends 😉).
This interview happened during a late night in my residency in Vienna with KulturKontakt Austria and the Austrian Federal Chancellery; residencies are always great time to reflect on past work to see where we want to go next.
