Hosted by: Ana Tiquia
With: Tiyan Baker, M@ Cornell, Nasim Patel and James Nguyen

Many peoples within our archipelago have their own version of shaved ice dessert topped with fruit or other glutinous or sweetened topping. Come and eat them with us and chat with Tiyan and M@ about equatorial fruits – and surrounding concerns – at the overlap of their current research as artists in residence. There will be fruit-opening, screening of video works and an artist talk about their ongoing research around equatorial thinking, heat, language and methods of embodiment.
