I'm offering an online artist statement workshop with the School for Poetic Computation starting on June 1st, 2020. There will be 5 sessions, 3 hours each.
Enrollment is open to anyone including artists, designers, creative technologists, engineers, architects, and others whose practices are difficult to define.
Much like a user guide helps non-technical readers understand a system, an artist statement introduces an unfamiliar audience to the artist’s practice and informs them about the references, questions, and thought processes behind the artist’s work. We will consider the artist statement as a practical communication tool (for grant and residency applications) as well as a more intimate map for guiding the direction and values of one’s practice.
☆ give thoughtful presentations of their own work and feedback to others
☆ participate in writing exercises and one-on-one editorial meetings
☆ read and discuss texts written by artists
☆ engage in group discussions about the challenges of maintaining an honest practice
☆ imagine alternatives to capitalist institutions as the context for our creative work
By the end of the workshop, students will cultivate clear and compelling artist statements which will be published in a collection on the SFPC are.na.

I will be a guest lecturer at Bard College for two seminar classes in Asian American Art History and Asian American Literature taught by Tom Wolf and Dr. Nathan Shockey, respectively. The courses explore a range of artistic and literary works associated with the contested category “Asian American” and consider the ways in which these works are inextricable from historical context; the experience of exclusion, internment, war, (post)colonialism, and political activism.
