    1. saw this show in barcelona years after i missed it in berkeley. i felt a certain sense of closure in seeing her work so far away from home after neglecting to experience it mere blocks from where i had worked. (and for many other reasons i won't go into now). but this show, this book, makes me feel profoundly whole. or more whole than i am, if that makes any sense.

    2. this catalog accompanied a curated show at Berkeley's BAM/PFA -- wonderful essays on Cha's visual art. See especially Trinh T. Minh-ha's essay!

    3. This amazing and beautiful book gives details about theresa cha and the performance aspects of her art career. It's a wonderful book to read in combination with Dictee.
