Li-Ming Hu is an interdisciplinary artist who employs a carnivalesque sensibility, to explore the relationships between cultural production and the construction of subjectivities.

With the weather warming, a sea-themed exhibition sounds pretty damn refreshing. For SeaWorthy: An Exhibition, EFA Project Space’s curatorial committee has assembled work by artists who use the boat as a means for collective action, reflection, and freedom. The show includes a range for media, from models to videos, and features art-scene luminaries like Duke Riley, Tod Seelie, Swoon, and Mat Bua. Some highlights include: Anne Percoco’s Kilmer Shrines, monuments that honor the under-appreciated drainage systems of New Jersey; and Jonathan Kaiser’s Janet II, a vessel built from refuse that transported the artist in foreign waterways. This exhibit is one part of a larger program taking place throughout the summer that includes public screenings, performances, workshops, and artist led-excursions on the water.
