Bring your own lunch to this special (free!) talk held in conjunction with the Halsey’s current exhibition, Cry Joy Park — Gardens of Dark and Light. Artist Jennifer Wen Ma conceived of a series of luncheons, held among her work, that deal with themes explored in Cry Joy Park. Break bread with other members of the community while enjoying a collaborative performance by a musician, dancer, or poet, relating to the luncheon’s theme. This weekend’s theme focuses on the issues pertaining to re-entering society after incarceration. The question, posed by Ma is: How do we bring the formerly incarcerated back into the fold of society, so they can become active and productive members of this paradise again?
