What's Next?: A five-hour marathon conversation and more on immigration, migration and home.
January 4 | Logan Center Gallery
Join artist Pope.L and curator Dieter Roelstraete and a diverse group of artists, writers, scholars, activists, organizers and musicians for a five-hour marathon discussion delving deeper into the themes of immigration, migration and home platformed in the current exhibition Brown People are the Wrens in the Parking Lot at Logan Center Gallery. Pope.L and Roelstraete will kick off the evening by discussing their recent work together at documenta 14 and how it relates to the art and issues animating the exhibition. The marathon conversation will be punctuated by food, music, performances as well as moments of exhilaration and silence. We welcome you to come, eat, drink, converse and share with us as we collectively dig into the great global immigration debate affecting our lives today. What's Next? is an endurance event and visitors are encouraged to come and go as they please.
