A Chat about Things: Artist Talk with Emily Lee and Rachael Henson
Join us for an intimate discussion with the artists from Almost Doesn’t Count. Visitors are welcome to sit on the floor along with the artists on provided pillows and blankets.
About Almost Doesn’t Count
Relatability, alienation, and the desire to categorize the individual body frames the conversation of Almost Doesn’t Count. Drawing from both their Asian and white backgrounds, Rachel Henson and Emily Lee explore the endless in-between-ness of identifying oneself.
