  • High&Low Bureau is a curatorial duo composed of Yael Messer and Gilad Reich. They curate exhibitions, film programs, performative events and publications, while engaging with a plethora of disciplines, media and modes of artistic expression.Their curatorial practice is dedicated to the exploration of artistic strategies that reflect on, and suggest alternatives to, specific social-political conditions.

  • Los Angeles is a city often described as having no center. Its art community has turned that "disadvantage" into an advantage and given itself a license for adventure. Organizations, galleries, and artists find decentralization to be an exciting option and they establish their addresses in unexpected neighborhoods and zones in the city and even beyond, in other cities and states. What are the challenges and advantages of this programmatic and conceptual strategy? What are the risks, to organization and audience alike? Is this necessary, and if so, is it sustainable?

Bari Kumar '88 India 
 
Kumar and two other motorbikers took a 16,000 kilometer trip (“Bharat Parikrama”), circumnavigating India from Bangalore to Goa, covering 72 cities in 57 days
 
The first day of our adventure started off with a great turnout of our friends and family members cheering us off from a motorcycle themed cafe, “Road Trip” in Bangalore at about 9 AM. We left Bangalore streets for the open highways (by open, I mean they are open to anyone and anything and anyway, anyhow) with beautiful surroundings. The day was gorgeous. Temp. around 80F and no smog. The rice fields were lit up in all the shades of green and the mountain ranges were outstanding.
 
We started from the Deccan plateau and descended through the Western Ghats (mountain range). We did a total of 450 km and made the first night halt at a town called Kundapur, on the west coast above Mangalore. The roads were good for the first 150 km but in the mountains were really broken up. Great learning experience for riding on the Indian roads! The bike is performing beautifully and I am quite comfortable riding it and keeping up with Dinesh and Navroze. They are both really skilled and experienced riders. Learned a lot through them. It was dark by the time we came down to sea level and got to the west coast town of Mangalore. From there the highway is two-lane and awfully crowded with trucks and all forms of traffic. It took us longer than planned to make the first night halt. We got to the hotel around 9:30 pm. We did take a couple of needed breaks, and that slowed us down as well. But the road conditions are what they are. Now we are getting ready to get to Panjim city in Goa. It’s about 350 km from here. Hoping to get there before dark.
