While the late summer has been moving at a comfortably sedate pace in Chelsea, Mixed Greens artist Mary Temple has kept busy installing a three-part show in Japan. Mary’s show, titled “Visual Deception II: Into the Future,” is hosted at three venues in Tokyo, Kobe, and Nagoya. As I write comfortably from the liberally air conditioned office, her assistant is installing the first part at the Bunkamura Museum of Art
, Tokyo, which will be up from August 9 – October 5. Mary sent us a couple of install shots; we hope to have more soon.

After a quiet day of downloading artist submissions && fossilizing comfortably inside an air conditioned gallery, I'm writing to pass along two exciting grant opportunities that trickled through the Mixed Greens email network this afternoon.
First, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) has begun accepting artist applications
for their 2015 Manhattan Arts Grants
. The grants are often geared towards young artists, who can then use them to leverage future funding support from other sources (which is lovely). Mixed Greens artist Rudy Shepherd
is doing a residency through LMCC on Governors Island this summer; in the fall, MG artist Mary Temple
will complete a residency with LMCC as well.
Second, EFA Project Space
in midtown is holding an open call for curatorial proposals
--proposals inventing, specifically, the most bizarrely impossible gallery shows imaginable. They will print these 500-word musings (due Sept. 01) to create an exhibition titled The Theoretical Show
, demonstrating the creative energy behind curatorial work that isn't curbed by the drab logistics of reality.
Apply! Be happy! && avoid the heat.
