This Saturday, November 14, on the occasion of the exhibition "American Artists from the Russian Empire", I am participating in a lecture at the San Diego Museum of Art in Balboa Park. I was invited by Alexander Jarman, Public Programs Manager for the museum. It is very interesting for me to work on the presentation, it makes me go through a lot of photos of my work, including the earlier work. it's exciting to share this presentation with Marisol Rendon and Shadab Zeest Hashmi!
