Book Retort with Christina Hajjar

Tuesday, January 23, 7-8pm

Through a diasporic lens, Christina Hajjar will take up several artist books to consider themes of home, time, memory, and ritual. She asks, “what does it mean to be/feel at home?,” as she engages with the intimacies, situatedness, and use of longing in each work. Join us for a talk, a cup of rose tea, and a low-pressure activity!
