Just sent out earlier today: updates on future events, talks, TV shows (!), etc:
The past few weeks have been busy for me, with more events to come… Please mark you calendars for a few upcoming exhibitions, talks, and even two TV spots (yow!). Note the special Counterfeiting Workshops I will be leading during the course of the Yerba Buena exhibition — if you find yourself free those particular Saturday afternoons, show yourself and say hi– it’s cheaper than going shopping downtown! Also, watch out for a KQED Spark television feature (with me and Margaret Cho on the same bill!), airing May 7. Details below…

In conjunction with this multi-faceted show I’ll be leading informal, drop-in Counterfeiting Workshops where you can learn how to crochet, freshen up your pre-existing skills, brush up on your Marx and Adam Smith, or just hang out and converse about bootleg economies and ways of critiquing the capitalist system. I’ve got all the materials and tools available, so just show up for the action! Participation is FREE with general gallery admission, no sign-ups required, just drop by 🙂
