Good conversation, and good times. Thanks to everyone who made it out to Christine’s opening last night, it was really such an awesomely optimistic evening.

Christine just did an really nice, comprehensive interview with local artist and writer Steven Barich on, discussing themes of optimism, positive psychology, the importance of metaphors, and designing her current show at Sight School. (plus so much more!)

I recently saw Joanna Malinowska’s work within the Knight’s Move at the Sculpture Center in Long Island City in NY and I instantly fell in love with her work.

Here is an interview she recently did on Artnet that speaks to her interest in Anthropology, music and Boli.
