Arab-American Artist Leila Buck’s “HoUSe” at Free Participatory Art Exhibit Writing On It All
Jun 4, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm| Free
HoUSe is an immersive, interactive exploration of what it means to make a place home. You are invited to enter an abandoned house on Governor’s Island – once a military barracks, banned by federal law from being inhabited since– in ways that evoke the process of entering the US. The house is filled with prompts and questions for you to respond to by making your mark – on walls, papers, and other materials – or choosing not to do so. HoUSe invites you to create and engage with the writing on the wall: To respond to it, erase it, or write your own – and in the process, to explore what it means to be(come) American. This exhibit is part of Writing On It All, a participatory writing project open to all interested members of the public.
