I see my art career not as a compartment for multiple activities, rather I aim to organically inform the various roles I play by engaging the Chicago art community via my personal art practice, exhibitions, curatorial projects, network initiatives and entrepreneurial projects. Based in Bridgeport for the last nine years, the Zhou B Art Center and 33 Contemporary Gallery have become the channels by which I contribute to the cultural landscape of our city. Not only do they play a significant role in the Bridgeport community but they also elevate the cultural significance of Chicago by the variety of exhibitions, international artists residencies and by establishing global networks of collaborations. Although, geographically speaking, the "Blocks" are small, in today's global environment, there is no limit as to how far one can reach out to make a difference for the good and the advancement of the arts.
