Synopsis: So-‐young makes a meager living by selling
herself to old men. She is a “Bacchus lady”, an elderly
prostitute who approaches potential clients with a
bottle of the popular Korean energy drink Bacchus and
the phrase “Care for a drink?” As a young woman, she
used to sell herself to American soldiers. Perhaps driven
by the painful memory of giving up her half-‐black infant
son for adoption, she is unable to ignore the
motherless Korean-‐Filipino child she meets while
visiting the hospital. Despite help from her social
outcast neighbors like Madame Tina, her transgender
landlady, or Do-‐hoon, a poor young man with a
prosthetic leg, she struggles to care for the child. One
day, Jae-‐woo, a former client, informs her that Song,
another regular, has been hospitalized following a
stroke. She visits the hospital to discover the man
completely paralyzed. Song begs her to end his life, a
request that causes her both bewilderment and dismay.

This event is designed to bring creative minds together and introduce the resources that the arts community at MSU has to offer. This year, Creative Collaboration will take the form of an arts festival! We are introducing student artist galleries, art activities, interactive booths, live performances and the chance to meet other students like you. With over 20 student creative organizations present, this event gives MSU students the chance to get involved and make a difference.
Every student at Michigan State University is aware of how big this school is. With over 600 student groups, it can be more than a little confusing and overwhelming to try and get involved or explore your interests when there’s so much information thrown at you on a daily basis, especially during Welcome Week. That’s why we created the MSU Arts Council and CREATIVE COLLABORATION. Now in its fourth year, CREATIVE COLLABORATION was formed under the idea of creating an arts-specific resource fair for new and returning students interested in pursuing creative endeavors and getting involved with the arts here at MSU, as well as creating a strong and collaborative arts community where groups can work together to create amazing events and establish long-term partnerships. Different groups from dance, visual arts, music, theatre, culture, and other art forms set up informational booths that showcase their work, activities, and events, meant to increase awareness and recruit new members. During the event, there are also numerous giveaways and awesome performances from the groups and fellow students. Whether you are looking for a networking opportunity, to improve your artistic skill set, or just for a creative outlet, CREATIVE COLLABORATION brings in groups that offer unique ways to engage with the arts and with MSU. Come out and join us, enjoy some live entertainment, meet new friends, and be a part of this amazing arts community. We hope to see you there!
Come join us and Dr. Christopher Bache for “Psychedelics, Art, and the Study of Consciousness”.

Material tactility, its possibilities, limitations, and transformation form the core of Kelly Akashi’s practice. Originally trained in analog photography, traditional processes and the materiality of documents continue to inform and fuel her sculptural explorations. Working in a variety of media, such as wax, bronze, fire, glass, silicone, copper, and rope, Akashi investigates the capacity and boundaries of these elements and their ability to construct and challenge conventional concepts of form.
Born in 1983 in Los Angeles, Kelly Akashi currently lives and works in Los Angeles, California. The artist graduated with a MFA from University of Southern California in 2014. Akashi studied at the Staatliche Hochschule für Bildende Künste – Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main and received her BFA at Otis College of Art and Design in 2006.
Currently on view at the Aspen Art Museum is a new commissioned sculpture, Cultivator, which will be on view at the museum’s Crown Commons through March 2021. Winner of the 2019 Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Foundation Art Prize the artist had a residency at the foundation in Ojai, California. Other residencies include ARCH Athens, Greece (2019) and at Headlands Center for the Arts, Sausalito, CA (2019) – both of which concluded with a solo exhibition. Other important solo exhibitions include Long Exposure curated by Ruba Katrib at the SculptureCenter, New York (2017). The artist’s work is currently featured in Ground/work at the Clark Art Institute and Possédé·e·s at MoCo Montpellier Contemporain in France. Other notable group exhibitions include the Hammer Museum’s biennial, Made in L.A. (2016); Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit (2017); LA: A Fiction, Musée d’art contemporain de Lyon, France (2017); Take me (I’m Yours), curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Jens Hoffmann, and Kelly Taxter, Jewish Museum, New York (2016); Can’t Reach Me There, Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis (2015).
