Learn about the multiple meanings and experiences of home this Thursday night at the Brooklyn Museum. For their Winter Salon: Writers on Home, in conjunction with the special exhibition One: Do Ho Suh and presented in partnership with Feminist Press, the Museum will host a curator tour, followed by a series of readings on “belonging, identity, and heritage beyond the model-minority myth.”
The tour begins at 6:30pm, at which point Eugenie Tsai, the John and Barbara Vogelstein Senior Curator of Contemporary Art, will take visitors on an immersive, behind-the-scenes walkthrough of the exhibition. Then, at 7pm in the American Art galleries, Jason Koo, T Kira Madden, and Alice Sola Kim will read from Go Home!, an anthology of fiction, memoir, and poetry by Asian American writers. The event will end with a conversation among the writers, moderated by editor Rowan Hisayo Buchanan.
Tickets to the event are $16 and include Museum admission. They can be purchased here.
When: Thursday, January 17, 6:30–8pm
Where: The Brooklyn Museum, Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Gallery and Luce Center for American Art, 5th Floor, 200 Eastern Parkway, Prospect Park, Brooklyn
