So in less than a week I am leaving from Rio to NY to exhibit my textiles at a 3 days expo called PrintSource. That was decided only 2 days ago - yeah totally last minute, I know.
It was a tough decision to put these expenses on my credit card and just go for it - all alone. This is vacation time in Brazil so the airfare was extra expensive - not to mention that just the concept of putting together the artwork for an exhibition was crazy enough. But it just feels like things are falling into the right place - like someone up there is just taking care of it...
And all of this is about a dream. And a game to reinvent myself. I want to show my textiles to the world, I want to put my babies out there, go beyond my comfort zone, beyond what it is safe. And then see what happens... afterall it is my dream and I am allowed to dream big!
I have been to NY only once - about 15 years ago and I loved it so very much! So now I am beyond excited but I will only have 2 days when I get to walk around town. The other days I will be working 9 til 6 (by the way if you want to see my print & pattern collection meet me at PrintSource, August 1-3).
Want to meet me in NY?
Any suggestions of what should I see and where should I go?
I want to see Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty. Any other ideas?
