Japanese graffiti artists who have relocated to New York City are included in this exhibition of 2ned generation developments in graffiti.

Landscape and Memory

March 19 – April 30, 2004

A collaboration with the Sumei Multidisciplinary Arts Center.

Organized by Yoland Skeete & Hal Laessig .

Two artists whose works have developed in compelling, transcending ways: Ken Fukushima links historical Japan to present thought. Wei Jane Chirs abstractions seek sublime goals. Her measurements of mundane urban experience basks in the music of silence while Fukushima's work exults in the music of time, and its progeny and history.

Mid Career: Carol Sun/Nobuho Nagasawa

May 22 – June 25, 2004

Nominating Panelists: Ko'an Jeff Baysa, Emily Cheng, Johnathan Goodman, Lilly Wei.

Two artists' installations: Carol Sun's video installation builds on her grandfathers who never met, one influenced by the West, developing the notion of legacy and family into a wider dialogue of communities and cultures. Nobuho Nagasawa's "Mapping Chinatown: Making the Invisible Visible", collaborates with art students of SUNY Manhattan to print information about Chinatown on specially designed chopstick sleeves distributed to co-operating local restaurants.
