I was mentioned in this week's Austin Chronicle in Andrew Long's interview with Michael Duncan (editor for Art in America) about the Texas Biennial:
"This year, Michael Duncan, an independent curator and corresponding editor for Art in America as well as a frequent contributor to Artforum, selected the art. The Chronicle spoke with Duncan from Los Angeles to find out about his curatorial process. . .
AC: Were there any recurring themes?
MD: Oh, yes! Artists positioning themselves against the world, such as Terri Thomas' outrageous paintings of herself nude with a gigantic glittered peacock or Dawn Okoro painting herself into billboard-sized postcards. . ."
