In Conversation: Lumi Tan, Curator, The Kitchen

November 15, 2018
6:30 pm—8:30 pm


Our speaker series is a casual and welcoming forum for art and ideas, featuring noteworthy arts professionals to share their philosophies, ethics, and practices, and to offer insight from their experiences. Following each guest speaker presentation and a Q&A session, the public is invited to stay, connect, and exchange ideas and conversation with each other.

Special thanks to our community partner Wendy’s Subway, a nonprofit library and writing space in Bushwick, for hosting this series for the 2018–2019 season.
