Happy to report that the Laomagination exhibit will be coming to New Rules in Minneapolis this month, highlighting over 20 years of our work as Lao American artists around the world, and the communities who collaborated with us over that time. My thanks go to the Joyce Award, MRAC, Rhizome, Forecast, the Asian Pacific Endowment and so many other sponsors of our work over the years that have made this exhibit possible. My lead collaborator, Kaysone Syonesa and I are very excited about how this project is shaping up so far.
This particular piece, Lao Assisting Others (L.A.O.) was created by Ash J. and is part of effort to help the Lao Assistance Center of Minnesota, our partner organization in the Joyce Award send the message out to our community about the effort to encourage volunteerism and philanthropy. It will be on exhibit along with many others until the end of June!
