#Notes2Self - Ignorance Can Be Bliss But Also Very Dangerous.
For some strange reason, I watched the graduation ceremonies for The Wharton School @whartonschool @uofpenn yesterday. It was #Amazing and #Beautiful
#Congratulations #ClassOf2019 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉 A part of me was trying to understand both the exhilaration and extreme pain, I felt while I was there.
Most striking, having lived on 3 Continents, was the sheer ignorance and arrogance of many #RealAmericans
When you are born and raised in arguably, the greatest country in the world, a complacency sets in.
#LackOfCuriosity #Superiority #Intolerance of perceived differences and /or weakness.
Don’t get me wrong, I met many wonderful Americans, who became friends.
When you do not have #diversity of relationships from different backgrounds, socioeconomic groups and ethnicities, it shows.
#Potus went to Wharton, but for all his wealth, european ancestors and education, I am so sorry to say, his lack of #knowledge is staggering.
You can go through life without curiosity and Ignorance can be bliss, but it is extremely dangerous when you are a #WorldLeadee
Meet Dr Mee Ping Leung #HongKong #Artist who also schooled in #France and #US
That immersion in different cultures, people and backgrounds, is what makes her #Art so so relevant.
It’s never too late to learn. I am on a journey myself.
https://www.lmp.hk/biography ’Through a research-based practice progressing to experimental interaction and integration, Leung Mee-ping’s works can integrate elements and platforms of theatre, design, commercial space and social space, in order to extend performance or action; those can be read as issue-based creativity.
Her works concern the ethic, community and memories of the human living situation which closely intertwine with her ongoing research in to visual culture and globalization.
Leung Mee-ping studied from France to America then to Hong Kong. She is professor of art creativity at the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University.’ #art4happiness #artistsoninstagram #MondayMotivation #ArtCanChangeTheWorld #IgnoranceIsBliss #PublicArt #leungmeeping
