** Conversation starts at 6:30 **
Gallery 456 hosts a conversation between artist Eleen Lin and curator Janusz Jaworski.
Lin's current body of work explores themes of cultural hybrids and diasporas, memory, sexuality, and the inadequacies of translations between cultures and eras.
The conversation takes place within Found in Translation, a solo exhibition of Lin's paintings and drawings inspired by Herman Melville's Moby-Dick, and mistranslations in the Mandarin version. With stunning and often playful imagery, Lin's works allow viewers to discover many narratives within them - even if the viewers are not familiar with the novel.
