Breathing is Free: 12,756.3 – New Work by Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba

January 29- March 26, 2010
Japanese-American-Vietnamese artist and School of the Art Institute of Chicago alumnus Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba (BFA 1992) returns to Chicago for this special exhibition.

Hatsushiba created new work for this show as part of his
on-going project “Breathing is Free,” for which the artist is running a
distance equivalent to the diameter of the earth (12.756.3 km) as a
memorial to refugees who travel the world seeking a new home.
Curated by Dr. Nora Taylor (SAIC Alsdorf Professor of South and
Southeast Asian Art), this show also features the film “The Ground,
the Root, and the Air: The Passing of the Bodhi Tree” 2007. This
exhibition is supported by a gift from Howard and Donna Stone and
a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
