Emma Nishimura | An Archive of Rememory  •  Neil Chowdhury | 46 Lahiri Lane
In  this pair of solo exhibitions, artists Emma Nishimura and Neil Chowdury listen closely for whispers that illuminate their family stories, and in the process point to larger narratives of colonization, migration, and adaptation through the diasporic experience. Both these artists engage generational memory: Primarily following their paternal lines, they attempt conversation between the generations that is limited by the nature of time and geographical distance. There is no claim to tell things as they objectively were, but rather a reinterpretation, reaching towards a lineage that extends across borders, nationhood, and cultural identity.

Opening reception: Saturday, March 25, 6-9PM
6:30PM: Conversation with curator Tomiko Jones and artists Neil Chowdhury and Emma Nishimura
