Visits: Sam Smith, LEAP and Shingo YoshidaSeptember 27, 2012
The Autumn residents had their first day of studio visits, starting with Sam Smith who presented his latest work, Film Without a Past, currently at Altes Finanzamt. It’s in its last days with a Q&A with the artist at the finissage on Wednesday October 3.
Then off to LEAP where we met with the lovely John McKiernan, one of the three co-founders and directors of the project space who explained their unique program to the residents. We also visited LEAP resident artist Shingo Yoshida who had just returned from the remote Friendship Island off Chile with a new work. He is soon heading to Greenland for his next project.
