Breathing is Free: 12,756.3

We at ASU Art Museum are excited to get our new season underway! Our first exhibition opening this Saturday, January 24, is an important refugee memorial project titled Breathing is Free: 12,756.3; New Work by Jun Nguyen-Hatshushiba. This project has a number of components including video, photography, maps and more, but takes its title from the distance of the diameter of the earth (12,756.3 km), which the artist is physically running in installments in different cities around the globe. He plans to run in Arizona in April 2009, but the museum exhibition begins on Saturday and runs through April 25, 2009.

Nguyen-Hatsushiba is known internationally for his video art, some of which is included in this current exhibition. Below is a(n iPhone) photo of the gallery in progress- those are video screens stretched across the wall.

The museum is now open Tuesday: 11am – 8pm, and Wednesday – Saturday: 11am – 5pm. We’re closed Sunday and Monday. Free parking is available outside the Ceramics Research Center in marked spaces – just be sure you sign in at the museum if you park there. :)

We’re looking forward to a great season. We hope to see you here!

[And don’t forget – you can still submit your short film for the 13th Annual Short Film & Video Festival through February 6!]
