 BEND: a live performance by Kimi Maeda

February 25, 2016, 7:00pm - 8:45pm

MIT, 2 Amherst Street, room E51-095,  Cambridge, MA

During World War II, over 110,000 Japanese Americans were taken from their homes by the United States Government. In this piece, the artist retells the story of her father and the artist Isamu Noguchi, both of whom were incarcerated in a camp in Poston, Arizona. Referencing the landscape of the camp’s desert, the artist uses sand to create live drawings inspired by these images while examining the effects of losing one’s home, one’s cultural identity, and one’s memory.
