Post I.D. post-opening

Friday, May 4th, 2007

So the Post I.D. opening was super-fun: I’ve been feeling a little like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, since that now makes three events in a row for me in the same gallery (Overmapped, SoEx Marks The Spot). That’s never happened before! I’m gonna work with that whole “three’s a charm” thing, though.

The show looks good, y’all: try to catch it this month, not for the Woffordly shenanigans I’ve been droning on about, but for the overall hella-fresh-ness of ALL the work in the show! Sita Bhaumik, Mark Baugh-Sasaki, Nancy Mizuno Elliott, and Rick Godinez put us to shame, their work is so frickin’ hot. Go see. Go see!

Nevertheless, here are more photos of Woffords in their unnatural habitat:

We decided against wearing our hoodies, but attempted to coordinate, anyway.

Post I.D. is just one part of the 10th annual United States of Asian America Festival, which runs for seven weeks. There’s a whole range of events, exhibitions, performances and screenings associated with the Festival, all of which are posted here. A number of the events look fantastic, but I’m gonna put a totally biased shout-out to SambAsia, since they’re totally amazing (and two members, Felix and Celia Magtoto, are the utterly phenomenal parents of my former students Niki and Monica)…and as long as we’re on the subject of phenomenal LHS parents, I have to put in a long-overdue shout-out to Bob Hsiang and Nancy Hom, who are Kearny Street Workshop’s godparents (and Nicole’s parents). It’s so nice to feel connected to all these folks again, through a different source!
