Biennale Sydney 2018 Wrapped Up

I've been very busy with school teaching and last shifts at Biennale that completed on 11 June. It was great to work as an Exhibition Host and an Access Host for people with disability. We carried it out for three months and made it happen! The fulfilled feeling is so nice. Very interesting to experience contemporary art and I met internationally leading artists in person such as Koji Ryui and Mit Jai Inn. "Meet the artists" is a great bonus from Biennale. 
I visited Cockcatoo Island and looked around the exhibition, yesterday. Lovely to see Koji Ryui. His work was very popular among visitors and us. Koji, our administrators and I enjoyed a chat over his art work. We, volunteers met Mit in training. My sketch made him smile. Thank you for signing it! 
As well as artists, I enjoyed lovely human interactions with visitors. When I did my final shift, young students came to our studio. I welcomed them. They talked over future directions, doodling on a table. I said, "Enjoy life fully, young guys! You're shining. Only once we can be young. Be silly! Do lots of experiments that will turn to be wonderful experiences." The delighted young people gave us a beautiful smile. Our reward. 
Sometimes, our shift was in a chilly rain. Freezing. But we welcomed visitors. The office provided us with blankets and hot drinks. Between shifts, we enjoyed a baked cakes competition and, of course, tasted them all! So nice and our wonderful memory. Friendship and mateship is another bonus! 
Apart from the art critiques in mass media, the team and the administrators worked so hard. Their sensitive approach to visitors was very caring and impressive. I could enrich my art world and learned a lot of modern art and what a curator's work is. I thank for Prof Ingrid Piller and Ms Ann James who gave letters for my Biennale Volunteer application. I also thank for my dear social worker friend who passed on me this opportunity. And I appreciate your support, Blogger friends! 
Now, I'm back to the studio work, the school teaching and other projects. 
Friends, Happy Painting and Enjoy Group Work!
