Antonio's update for March and April

Life seems to be rushing by sometimes. My last two months certainly felt that way.

„Offline“ kept me busy. Writing a blog and sending out emails to you and the world have had to make space for „real life“. But writing a Blog or reading an email is real life too! Not writing for almost two months might be just a bit too long.

But writing is like painting, in the wrong mood, no useful line will be accomplished, no brushstroke will look harmonious.

Today, I will not try to write a beautiful email, but to just state the events that had prevented me from writing to you earlier. Each would have been a good email on its own...

My last email on March 12 was about the commentary of me in Kuangzhai Xiangzi that Chengdu TV did in collaboration with other TV stations. You can see it now with subtitles on youtube:

On March 16, almost 50 artists and I had an exhibition at „Boke Xiao Chen“, located at Luodai anciant town along the „31st Chengdu International Peach Blossom Festival”. I exhibited artworks created in ink on paper since it was an ink artwork and calligraphy exhibition:

On March 17, Gael de Kerguenec, Changzi Hui and I exhibited at Polus International Tourist Resort Museum.

Here, I exhibited some larger abstract “Gravity” artworks and combinations of photography and Gravity.

On March 20, I attended the grand opening of a new building at XLY MoMA. A spectacular event and a fantastic addition to the museum premises. Currently colored bronze sculptures by Xu Liaoyuan are on display.
