Enrico Riley - Prescient Habits and Cinque Mostre 2017

Associate Professor Enrico Riley will participate in two shows this month:

"First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you're inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won't. Habit is persistence in practice."
—Octavia Butler

Mostly we don't know what we're doing—we respond, we seek, we dig in shit. We glean broken roots from history, we bounce off things, something starts to grow, to happen, ends up nowhere or with a different punch line than our intentions, a different arch, or none at all. But if we follow, build associations out of the wreckage, test the prescient cues of our inquiries, we find our work, the discipline here being work, the habit of investigation.

Prescient Habits is a show of five people who use drawing to build Prescient Habits.

 Tenzin Norbu studied for sixteen years under Temba Chomphel, eventually becoming assistant master. Tenzin remembers that throughout his time here at Norbulingka, he got many opportunities to go abroad but each time his master strongly advised against going saying, “Wait until you have perfected the art of thangka making and have learned all there is to know. Then you will be free to go anywhere you wish.” Each time, Tenzin heeded his master’s words and now he looks back on this advice with gratitude.
