A Bit Tuary Interview Session

May 24 – May 25, 2024
3 – 1PM

What Can We Do? awardee Dena Igusti presents an interview session with Erica Kaunang for A Bit Tuary, a multimedia series in which Southeast Asian Americans are asked to explore their relationship with grief, both current and anticipatory. Participants will be asked to discuss a physical symbol of a grief they are currently or expecting to face, whether that be a letter from their parents, a screenshot of a conversation with their friend, an item of clothing, or something else entirely, and be recorded/documented holding and interacting with it for 30 seconds. Afterwards, they will be interviewed on the significance of that item and why it is a symbol of grief for them. Sessions will be held between 3-5pm May 24th and 11-1pm May 25th in Meeting room 2 at Sunset Park Library.

This project is a part of the What Can We Do? artist grant program, presented by Asian American Arts Alliance (A4) and is supported by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Special thanks to Council Members Christopher Marte and Sandra Ung.
