Another great weaving by @elenadaojingyu that will be available at the Whitney Museum Shop – A-Z West Studio Weavings are made by the community of artists who utilize our A-Z West Weaving Studio. Each weaving is one of a kind, and adheres to a simple dictate (in this instance two black stripes anywhere in the weaving) which is then interpreted by the individual weavers.
Radiating Arenas of Enhancement (2006)⠀When maintaining my world becomes an overwhelming endeavor, I try to practice "Radiating Arenas of Enhancement."

Getting into the very final section of a new commissioned work! (Weaving by @mjennifermorris )
Planar Configurations at Regen Projects in Los Angeles – will be sad to say goodbye to this show! (last day is August 12th)
Wagon Stations arriving at A-Z West after their tenure at the Milwaukee Art Museum in the early 2000s – Maybe this was around 2003? At first they were dotted all around the compound – but eventually they migrated back into the wash area which is more secluded.
…not totally without problems – but it's getting there.
Wait… where did the summer go? It's the last week to see Concrete Realities at Bortolami in New York – two person show with the marvelous @burrtomburr
Right book – right time. (Worth mentioning that I have a pretty wacky reading list going on right now, half art- history/social-history and half metaphysical/mystical. The overlap? …both talk about how to change the rules of the game)
