Mario Mandala and me, Friday, July 18

My dear friend, uber-artist and literati vet Mario Tauchi (wall-painting above) is hosting a series of events and exhibitions relating to self-expression and sanity (mutually exclusive?) from July 18 to 31.

Mario graciously invited me to join him, a fellow Tokyo artist and a gallery owner/art researcher on a panel discussing 'Artists and Self-Management' tomorrow night (Friday, July 18) at the void+ gallery in the Minami-Aoyama/Omotesando area. Starts 7 p.m.

If you're in this town, enduring its torturous temperatures and keen on airing out, please join us. (*note: the dominant language will be Japanese.)
