Photolucida's Laura Moya is on her way to Mongolia later this week to the Xiang Sha Wan Week of Photography. She has curated work for the "Folk Culture and Non-Material Heritage" exhibition with the (above) work of Kathleen McLaughlin (Critical Mass 2006) Nancy Newberry (Critical Mass 2009), and Jane Alden Stevens (Center's Reviews 2010). Nancy and Kathleen will meet up with Laura in Beijing and they will travel to Mongolia together.
Last December, some other Critical Mass participants (CM10) made the same trip (Thomas Michael Alleman, Lauren Semivan, Justine Reyes, Chris Rauschenberg). A great account of this trip by Brook Jensen is blogged about here.
Laura also participated in the Lishui Photo Festival in China in 2010, curating work by Desiree Edkins and Lori Vrba, both who have entered Critical Mass. Says Laura, "It is great to find work for curatorial projects in our own programming!"
Reminder, Critical Mass 2011 closes in NINE days on July 15.
