Christopher K. Ho
Christopher K. Ho’s 2010 solo exhibition Regional Painting involved living in a shed covered in license plates for a year in the mountains. The recourse to a romantic tradition was both an earnest attempt to rediscover painting and a response to the self-imposed limitations of conventional critical art. In addition to the sojourn itself, the exhibition included paintings by Hirsch E.P. Rothko (an anagram of Christopher K. Ho) and a semi-fictional memoir published as a pocket paperback.
