My first scheduled dinner engagement, (followed immediately by another late meeting), began a mere two hours after we arrived here from Canada last Friday… what with the 23rd Icograda General Assembly on the following two days, and then three consecutive days of the 2009 Icograda World Design Congress, the past week has been somewhat of a blur. While I’ve been busy with formal daytime activities, Ev has been out “touristing” and exploring the city on her own… then meeting up with me again at assorted venues for late-day show openings, dinners, receptions, exhibitions, and other design-related evening activities. Never a dull moment…
Photos: Ev and I at an evening opening (thanks for the photo, Halim); the remarkable Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) where the last two days of the Congress took place; a piece of quirky student work; Ev posing with a cast of Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker at CAFA; Ev’s auto-portrait at the Forbidden City.
