4 exhibitions, 4 projects, 4 countries!

It's often said that once you put your work out there, it begin to have a life of their own. Without the support of those who believe in our work, we would truly never be able to give our work the audience it deserves. So a big shout out and thank you to everyone behind these exhibitions!

Three personal projects spanning ten years are concurrently on view in three countries—Iceland, Latvia, Hungary, and a fourth exhibition is on its way here at home in NYC! I'm thrilled to announced an upcoming group show I'm privilege to be part of along with Thomas Holton and An Rong Xu opening next month at The Museum of the City of New York:

"Open House" Exhibition at Gerðuberg Culture House, Reykjavik

Added on by Annie Ling.

My series Open House is currently on view as a solo exhibition in Reykjavik all summer long, coinciding with this year's Nordic Conference Roots & Wings. If you're flocking to Iceland for the summer, hope you can stop by! 

"Moments From The Life Of Asylum Seekers In Iceland" will be at Gerðuberg Culture House until the end of August. The Culture House hours are Monday to Thursday from 10:00-18:00 and Friday from 11:00-18:00.

"Independent Mothers" at the National Museum of Iceland

Added on by Annie Ling.

As my latest exhibition at the National Museum of Iceland / Þjóðminjasafn Íslands comes to a close next weekend, I must thank everyone involved in the project, the staff at the museum and the photo community in Reykjavík for the welcome, particularly visionaries of the Icelandic Photography Festival. What an honor to share this work with my "mothers" and their families, as well as countless other mothers who have since reached out to me since the unveiling of this series.

This monumental museum at the heart in Reykjavík has been the ideal venue for showcasing this work. Fielding questions from locals along with curious foreign visitors at the museum during my artist talk last month offered a tangible window into the kind of cross-cultural dialogue we could and should be having about gender equality, and how societies can change and adapt to the needs of the population. I'm proud of the fact that this series highlighting the strength and independence of single mothers in Iceland can bring to question the treatment of single mothers elsewhere in the global community.

#Supercrawl2015 #FloatingPopulation

Added on by Annie Ling.

So grateful for an incredible exhibition and all who came out to the opening in Hamilton! None of this would have happened without good friends and volunteers who were willing to pitch in, assist with transportation, installation and take down of a epic show with near ninety images in one action-packed week in Canada. It's an honor to be named Alumni of the Year and receive the Distinguished Alumni Award. Thanks RUC for your support of this exhibition!

A Floating Population at Hamilton SuperCrawl

Added on by Annie Ling.

Friends in Hamilton, Ontario and beyond, it's my pleasure to bring you an epic reincarnation of last year's solo exhibition "A Floating Population" at MOCA museum in NYC, this weekend only at #SuperCrawl2015 the largest art crawl event of the year!

Except this time the venue won't be a polished museum, the exhibition will be gloriously re-imagined in an expansive vacant furniture show room (formerly Ricca's Furniture) at the center of the one and only James St. in Hamilton with an expected near 200,000 art crawl attendees.

Around 90 images from "A Floating Population" will be on display Sept 11-12, for 2 days only! It takes much longer to transport and install the show, just to give you an idea of the scope of our ambition!

It's especially a joy and privilege to bring this show to Hamilton and to you, friends who have rallied and supported me through so much, but have not been able to travel long distances to shows in NY and abroad. This show is for you, and I'm looking forward to seeing you there!

OPENING RECEPTION:
This Friday, Sept 11th -- 7-9pm
245 James Street N., Hamilton, ON
*Street entrance to show on 2nd floor (above The Forge)

Independent Mothers - Debut Exhibition in Akureyri, Iceland

Added on by Annie Ling.

I had dreamed not long ago that I would find the ideal venue in Iceland to debut this personal project, on June 19th, 2015, the 100th anniversary date of Women's Suffrage in Iceland, when a number of women in the country were granted voting rights for the first time.

With utmost respect and gratitude for all the single mothers who welcomed me into their families and lives, sharing stories over meals and coffee, your generosity of spirit and nurture got me through during the dark winter months of Skammdegi this winter in Ólafsfjörður, Iceland.

Also, a special thanks to Listhús í Fjallabyggð in Ólafsfjörður and the fantastic Mjólkurbúðin Gallery... I could not have asked for better enablers and supporters of this work.

So, it is with great pleasure I say... the dream has been realized! And it's damn good to be back. More to come... and be sure to check back in a few days when the series will be up online. If you enjoyed following my experience of short winter days (see: New Yorker), you can now follow on Instagram as I share glimpses of long summer days touring Iceland!
