UNITED KINGDOM: Charming for the Revolution A Congress for Gender Talents and Wildness a collaboration with the Tate Modern and Electra. E-flux says, “Charming for the Revolution is an experimental congress of artists, activists and thinkers who seek to unpick underpinning, pressing questions of contemporary sexual and gender politics; exploring strategies that divert and destabilise normative gender and its representations.”
NEPAL: There is now a third gender option for those procuring a citizenship certificate in Nepal. Huffington Post says, “activists hailed the decision, saying it was an achievement for gay and transgender rights.”

Anish Kapoor, Shooting into the corner, 2008-2009
This work was brought to my attention by e-flux, read about it here, it is now on display as part of a a retrospective of Kapoor’s work at Pinchuk Art Center.
Last Sunday marked the day of my graduation from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Yes, now you can call me Master. The graduating students of SAIC have the privilege of walking across the stage of the Jay Pritzker Pavilion in Millenium Park to receive their diplomas. A smidgen to the west rests the infamous Chicago “Bean.” The “Bean’s” title is Cloud Gate and it was created by Anish Kapoor. This morning as I was wading through the emails I’ve neglected the past few weeks I came across another work by Kapoor and I thought the many visitors we had last weekend would find it interesting to see another work created by the “Bean” artist.

Ming Wong, Making China Town, 2011
I learned about Ming Wong from e-flux. This is what e-flux had to say.
Find Ming Wong’s website by clicking here.
Read about his work on REDCAT‘s website.
My initial attraction to the work was purely visual but after reading a bit about it my interest grew,
“Working through the visual styles and tropes of such iconic film directors as Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Wong Kar-wai and Ingmar Bergman, Wong’s practice considers the means through which subjectivity and geographic location are constructed by motion pictures.” -REDCAT
“Wong’s reinterpretation, Making Chinatown, transforms the exhibition space into a studio backlot and examines the original film’s constructions of language, performance and identity.” -e-flux
