Reading Group

Reading Group


Every Saturday, join members of the curatorial team for an informal reading group discussing works of fiction and theory related to the exhibition and its central theme of cultural hybridity. Weekly discussions consider texts by exhibiting artist Seth Price; Vietnamese-American poet Ocean Vuong; the Brazilian novelist Clarice Lispector, and the Canadian-Sri Lankan writer Michael Ondaatje’s novel In the Skin of a Lion (1987), from which the exhibition’s title is derived. Extracts from these texts will be distributed and read collectively at the start of each session to kick-start the conversation.

This week's group is lead by Rosa Abbott, looking at an extract from Passing by Nella Larsen.
