Faculty H Lan Thao Lam’s Artist Talk “Citizens of Tomorrow”

Fine Arts faculty H Lan Thao Lam (in collaboration with The New School, Media Studies faculty Lana Lin) will be giving an artist talk about their projects and working methodologies over the past dozen years. Lin + Lam‘s projects have addressed the dissemination and attrition of cultures and languages through postcolonialism and globalization, the historical and contemporary conditions of refugees and displaced persons, and the paradoxical anonymity and surveillance of undocumented migrants. The artist team is attentive to the materiality of history as it is manifested through sites, documents, and psychic residues. Their lecture will pose questions about the life and death of archives, and what it means to queer the archive.
