Wilson Shieh’s 1984 Mixtape

I love this painting by Wilson Shieh, which is one of the lots in Asia Art Archive’s fundraiser auction. (Full disclosure: I work at AAA, an organization devoted to disseminating knowledge about art in the region to the world.) During the preview cocktail, where we got to see this glorious work in person, my friends and I said that we wanted to do all these songs at karaoke the next time we go because we are art nerds who love eighties tunes.
For your listening pleasure, I’ve gathered all the songs from Shieh’s mixtape in a Youtube playlist if you want to throw your headphones on at work and immerse yourself.  Now, pretend that this is a cassette you just received from the artist and you’re starting on side A.
