Shifting Possessions #4

The last Salon Series moderated by Việt Lê is happening Thursday, December 7, 6pm. Artists from Paris (Frédéric Dialynas Sanchez), New Mexico (Corey Pickett)  and Hanoi (Nhung Đinh) convene on this moderated talk about physical and socio-political landscapes, mass media and the mundane. Afrofuturism, Asian indigenous shamanism, and European avant-garde frameworks shift as these artists ask, What does possession mean?
