Liquid Borders/Empty Promises exhibition at Ise Cultural Foundation Sept 7-Oct 26 featured a number of artists from Hong Kong, in this case Annysa Ng. The theme is the Hong Kong-China border, its limits and its hidden agenda, Annysa's piece caught my eye. Picking up on reversing the idea of living till one dies, she has gathered articles from a fictional life, from birth to death, even including fictional maps of a journey to Hades from Classical myths and one from China.

Liquid Borders/Empty Promises, Sept 7-Oct 26.
Also on Sept 7 evening at Judson Church was a film screening sponsored by NRN - Native Resistance Network, an indigenous group related to OWS - Occupy Wall Street. Broken Rainbow can be seen in 7 parts on the website http://blackmesais.org/ This film made it clear, genocide is taking place in the US. It stuns me to see prominent Senator Goldwater and others authorizing re-location of Hopi and Navaho people when they clearly know this is genocide. The charade perpetrated is hardy a deception, so obvious is this crime. And it is continuing.
After the screening one of the speakers was Frankie Delgada who spoke about the struggle in Puerto Rico over the proposed gas line that will cut through the island. Eminent Domain may be used to enforce relocation.
AAAC began its long awaited Flea Market! At 47 Canal St in front of Frank's Video Repair shop a table or two is set up and items that have been collected for many years are offered to anyone and everyone who passes by. This is great fun to bargain with those looking for just the right thing - a gold mine of miscellany, from fabrics, scarves & dance costumes, to tools, gallery equipment, slide projectors and slide storage cabinets. Larger items like office tables, wall board heaters, and bicycles are available and on Craigs List.
Meeting tourists from Germany and Poland. If you want to stop by call/email first, not there on a regular time.
