In collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art, this Writing Club at Home welcomes guest writer Lawrence-Minh Bùi Davis to facilitate a writing workshop on the theme of ghosts, in conjunction with the exhibition An-My Lê: Between Two Rivers/Giữa hai giòng sông/Entre deux rivières. This workshop takes place online, via Zoom.
Writing prompts will be available in English, Vietnamese, and French.
Lawrence-Minh Bùi Davis, PhD, is a mixed-Viet-diasporic editor, writer, and troublemaker. By day he passes as a curator for the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center, based on the ancestral lands of the Piscataway Nation sometimes also known as Washington, DC. By night and on alternating weekends he is a cofounder of the pop-up Center for Refugee Poetics. Sometimes you can see new things by the light of his ADD.
Writing Club is part of the Artful Practices for Well-Being initiative, in which we seek to offer a space for connectedness and healing through art. At each session, a guest writer will introduce different works of art and offer a series of creative writing prompts. We offer a calm, supportive, and welcoming environment for anyone interested in writing in response to art in the company of fellow writing enthusiasts. Participants will have the option, but not obligation, to share some of their new work with others.
This event is FREE. Registration is required.
There will be verbal descriptions for all images and live CART captioning. American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation is available for public programs upon request with two weeks’ advance notice. MoMA will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made with less than two weeks’ notice.
