Please join us for an evening devoted to Asad Raza's book The Home Show, hosted by Raza and contributors to the book. The Home Show is inspired by Asad Raza’s performative evolution of the apartment exhibition, held at his apartment in New York City. Artists, friends and family were invited to contribute artworks, sounds, performative instructions, and rituals to the show, and every visitor received a tour from Raza.
Come early to see The Store Show! An enterprising group of student, faculty, and some store staff will be installing an ad hoc variation on The Home Show at Labyrinth. Come by any time after 5 for a pre-event glass of wine and to see what there is to see in the Labyrinth underground.
