A few days before the end of the year, I sat down with Mali Wu, a socially engaged artist, who alongside Francesco Manancorda, co-curated the 2018 Taipei Biennial, titled Post Nature: A Museum as an Ecosystem. We spoke curatorial mechanisms, environmentally focused art, and her future plans.
42 participants from 19 countries were invited to participate. Many of these participants were non-traditional artists such as filmmakers, activists, researchers and other environmental groups.

October is the month of 大稻埕國際藝術節 Tua-Tiu-Tiann International Festival of Arts and 草御殿 Ivy Palace is a local space working to revive the artistic vitality and diversity in collaboration with this Dadaocheng centred festival. Ivy Palace has invited Taipei Poetry Collective to share our poetry there on Saturday night. That's this Saturday 13th. It's gonna be a short sharp reading from 8-9. We want to invite you to come have a drink, listen to some new poetry, and start your night right. It's FREE. Come say haaai, hello and give us warm squeezes.
If you didn't pick up a copy of our last zine, we have a few of those beauties left—so grab one before they all get snatched up!

I am beyond excited that Megan Ross asked me to design the front cover of her debut collection of poetry which explores unexpected motherhood and all its emotional detritus. It's a gorgeous collection: tender, raw, and honest. I loved reading and re-reading it. Go to Uhlanga Press to find out more and get her book here.
