About this event
"I let them in. Conditional Hospitality and The Stranger" is a two-person exhibition featuring videos by Kader Attia and Candice Breitz, curated by Taraneh Fazeli, 2018 Bemis Curator-in-Residence. Amidst the current “migration crisis,” these artworks interrogate who is afforded the right to speak or the ability to be understood considering dominant representational narratives and the political, socio-psychological, and technological systems that shape our understandings of self and the communal. 6–8 PM – Public Opening Reception 6:30 PM – ARTalk with Taraneh Fazeli, Bemis 2018 Curator-In-Residence + Rachel Adams, Bemis Chief Curator and Director of Programs Following the ARTalk, guests are invited to enjoy a casual reception celebrating the opening of "I let them in.
