My art prints look nice! Thank you for uploading them here.
Please tell us what that "Bay Area Daddaists" thing is all about, thanks. I note Spain and Japan here, but how does the Bay Area (that cable car says San Francisco all over it) get linked to this chain?
I made three silkscreen prints based upon my experience in San Francisco. I visited the city for the first time in 1979 and stayed there about 8 months.
During my stay there, I made friends with wonderful artists. Some of them called themselves 'Bay Area Dadaists'. Hope you got it.
Your art is great! Thank you very much for everything!
Thank you for your explanation, Tohei. In 1979 I was a student at the University across the bay in Berkeley. I lived in the Bay Area from my birth in the 1950's until 1996. The art community in San Francisco has always been quite large, but perhaps our paths crossed while you were staying in San Francisco.
Are you familiar with the city-wide "Inter Dada" Festival that was held in 1984 in San Francisco? I would guess that some of your acquaintances may have been involved in it. I was in a performing act called -ING that performed at one of the Inter Dada events held at the Victoria Theater.
It is is very nice to meet you, best wishes, Charles
I knew something about the Inter Dada 84, but I could not participate in it. Some of my old friends were Bill Gaglione/dadaland, Anna Banana, Carl Loeffler and Nancy Frank from La Mamelle/Art.com, and Fred Truck from Des Moines, Iowa. I will travel to Oregon and California from mid-May until the beginning of June, this year...
Yes, some of those names are familiar, but I was not directly acquainted with any of them. I recently had some interactions with Walter Alter, who provided me with some very old Dadaist tape recordings of his. Also, since 2010, Jinny Lloyd has been documenting the Inter Dada 84 festival quite thoroughly on this blog (lots of pics and video there)...
I wish you good adventures on your upcoming return to the USA!
