The way I see it, there are two ways to go: either wear yourself out hitting every event, every screening, and every talk for the SFIAAFF (um, cloning option, please?), or, just deal and hope that the shorts program isn’t as good as it looks. I may be reasonably motivated as far as film goes, but give me one night to see something and chances are I’ll keep my fingers crossed for good distribution luck.
Perhaps for this reason I am grateful for longer-running exhibitions, not the least because I’m lazy, but because I’m a glutton for return visits–especially if they involve something that can be done during my lunch hour.
This afternoon I was watching the final touches being put on the Main Library‘s Korean Comics exhibition. U.C. Berkeley’s Dr. Sung Lim Kim curated the show in the Jewett Gallery, which runs through June 13. Trina Robbins–who will be at the Asian Art Museum for an exciting lecture this June–will be part of an esteemed panel on Manwha for girls on April 8th.
While you’re at the museum, take the elevator up to the third floor to visit the Chinese Center, a drool-worthy collection of books rivaled only by the excellent Shanghai embroideries on view there until May 31st.
It’s no mystery why I rarely leave the neighborhood.
