Jun Kaneko on his production of the Magic Flute at the Kennedy Center Opera House in Washinton D.C.
"I try to keep myself as empty as possible and just listen to the music. Usually it takes me two to three months to get some kind of visual image coming out, just listening. I listen to the opera two to three times a day. Then i start drawing form memory, and keep doing it for a month, and then look at it."

Kendell Carter: WE
September 12 - December 31, 2016
WE continues Carter’s exploration of race, gender, history, and consumer culture. The artist cites his choice of hip-hop as a model for his work, identifying it as “one of the few multiracial, multigenerational contingencies that we have.” Carter seeks to push discourse on his work past that of a black artist making art about politics, and towards one that acknowledges the integrated visual culture in which we are all participating.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s American landscape architect Lawrence Halprin and avant-garde dance pioneer Anna Halprin organized a series of experimental, cross-disciplinary workshops in Northern California. The workshops brought together dancers, architects, environmental designers, and artists in a process designed to facilitate collaboration and group creativity through new approaches to environmental awareness. The Halprin Workshops, 1966–1971 presents original photographs, films, drawings, scores, and other documentation of three workshops: Experiments in Environment, 1966; Community, 1968; and Leadership Training, 1971.
