Beats Per Minute

Fun opening coming up this Tuesday, March 13th: Julio Morales (who as far as I can tell, no longer sleeps) has curated a very cool show at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art called Beats Per Minute. As the fabulous Christine Wong Yap is one of the artists in this show, with Julio that makes TWO Galleon Trade artists who are affiliated with this exhibition! Go Julio! Go Christine!

And I’m thrilled that Trisha Lagaso Goldberg is in the exhibition as well. Trisha, her husband David, and their son have been living in Honolulu for a few years now, and are dearly missed by the Bay Area arts community. It’s so nice to have her back for a bit, especially in her reinvigorated life as an artist!

Beats per Minute, curated by Julio Cesar Morales, features recent sound-based and visual artworks by emerging and internationally acclaimed artists Walter Kitundu, N. Trisha Lagaso Goldberg, Mung Lar Lam, Christy Matson, and Christine Wong Yap, and the artist collective Torolab, featuring Nortec.

The exhibition’s title refers to the term BPM, used by disc jockeys who blend sounds from various sources to create a new piece of music. Through the influences of craft and folk art, these artists make unique works that blur the boundaries of music, visual arts, and new media.
