Visa For Lian Tsai
2014, PENTHOUSE GALLERY, BALTIMORE, MD
In this piece, Lian Tsai, a Taiwanese artist, and I were able to acquire an OPT (Optional Practical Training) Visa for her continued residence in the United States by hiring her to “work” at Penthouse, the DIY venue where I was a resident artist. As specified in this Letter of Hire, in her new role, Lian was to develop her body of work and put on a solo exhibition. Since this piece, I have been able to use other platforms I organize in a similar manner, supporting individuals in acquiring OPT Visas.
