Stories – A Group Exhibition

August 17 – September 4, 2013

Reception: Saturday, August 17, 6:30 –10 PM

Giant Robot is proud to present Stories, an art show featuring new works by Edwin Ushiro, Jen Tong, Jeni Yang, Martin Hsu, Sean Chao and Tessar Lo.

The commonality of the artists is simply that they’re operating in a similar art environment although they’re located in different parts of North America. Edwin Ushiro, originally from Hawaii draws sublime imagery that often appear dark in message, yet are at times as light as can be. East Coaster, Jen Tong creates imagery that’s reminiscent of a world that’s something like Miyazaki meeting Moebius. Jeni Yang, a consistent exhibitor at Giant Robot works with wood and imagery that includes both cats and snacks. Martin Hsu, now in San Francisco is the creator of Dragon Boy creates a fantasy world that’s screaming to be animated. Sean Chao creates tiny worlds in diorama form. Tessar Lo, from Toronto draws freely and has honed his style that mixes both composition and abstractness.

The District and Silver Spring: Asian Latino – 2


This is the part that takes place at Veteran’s Square in Silver Spring. […] I realize that as much as you just want to throw an event, the outreach to people one at a time, can make a difference.


The District and Silver Spring: Asian Latino


The Asian Latino outdoor event in Silver Spring, MD. Music, images projected and people in a public space. Kids ran around, people talked and the locals checked it out.

What’s more photogenic than the work of Barbara Krueger? No matter where you stand, it arresting and blaring.



Playtime Festival 2013


My husband (a music festival virgin) and I, drove down to Ulaanbaatar from Darkhan, and camped out for Saturday’s bands. What I learned: The Mongolian music scene is amazing.



Animal Style Revisited at Asian Cinevision’s AAIFF (NYC) + Ramones Pilgrimage


Last night my program of indie skate videos by friends showed at the Anthology Film Archives in the East Village. I knew it was a rad spot as soon as I saw the Let Me Die a Woman and Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! posters outside.
