The Buddhist Bug: Familiar Still
Opening Reception & Performance by Anida Yoeu Ali
Saturday, October 14th, 11am-5pm
Performance artist Anida Yoeu Ali playfully inhabits "The Buddhist Bug," a sinuous, caterpillar-like garment whose color references the robes of Buddhist monks while following the strict modest attire of orthodox Muslim women. Ali's bug is an exploration of diasporic identities particularly inspired by her fascination with Buddhism as a Cham-Muslim American. Exhibition includes photos, videos, installation and a durational live performance on opening day.
