Research notes (from the archives) - text reads: "But what really began putting the sheep business out of business was when the rest of the United States became interested in this public domain. You had more people living in this area, and a whole process of restrictive use of that public domain for grazing began, and although the cuts were spread over a period of years, you have got a seventy-five percent cut in the amount of land you could use to fatten your animals, and even though this was spread over a period of, say, five years, you couldn't handle that"
Happy Birthday, Dad! You're a class act from every angle.

If you are in New York, please join us for an evening of conversation with artists Su Yu-Hsien and Cici Wu, moderated by Howie Chen this Thursday! The discussion will focus on the two artists’ works currently on view at Triangle. This public program is part of A Disappearing Act (Feb 16 – Feb 27, 2017), an exhibition developed from archival research in an effort to reconstruct historical works that were either lost, fragmented, never realized, or inherently ephemeral.
