Hey people - it's been a while. I just wanted to send out a headz up about an exhibition I have coming up. As many of you know, I'm an artist, writer, and musician. In October, I have two large projects I wanted to invite you to check out.
1) I have an exhibition with some of my favorite artists from Japan: Yoko Ono, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Mamaru Oshi (he directed one of my favorite films "Ghost in the Shell") etc Also, if you haven't had a chance, check out the material I produced on Yoko Ono's last album "Yes, I'm a Witch" The theme of the show is centered on this 2012: Art, The City, and The Environment and the opening party will be under the new Highline.
2) On another note - I'm a judge for this year's South Asian International Film Festival. I hope you can check out some the films http://www.saiff.org/
Blurb: The week-long event will run from Wednesday, October 21 through Tuesday, October 27, 2009 in New York City. With several screening locations, a team of high-profile supporters, red carpet premieres, and a slate of top-notch films, the festival will give audiences of all ages and ethnicities a chance to discover new South Asian voices and celebrate established ones.
I hope you can make some of the events. I haven't been around NY for several months because I was shooting a film in the South Pacific. It's a long story...
Paul ps, don't forget - the new album comes out in the beginning of October too! But that's another email
