Migratory Positions: a discussion on Cici Wu's Belonging and Difference
On the concluding week of our current exhibition, we are convening a panel discussion taking Cici Wu’s Belonging and Difference as a point of departure to discuss non-linear approaches to migratory and diasporic remembrance, memory, and archives. Speakers include artist Elaine W. Ho, art historian Dr. Yeewan Koon, and academic Dr. Linda Chiu-han Lai. Moderated by critic and writer Jaime Chu.
Sunday, November 12, 5-6PM

No registration required. We will also open the exhibition an extra day: 11AM-7PM. Program attendees can also pick up a copy of our new exhibition booklet with an essay by Michelle WT Wong, which is also available for download here.
