Performance-Dead Languages By Jonathan Wei

June 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Main Building | Arnall Family Terrace
Free tickets required. Reservations available May 20.

Writer, performer and director Jonathan Wei joins us for a reading of Dead Languages, a powerful telling of his own coming-of-age story. Growing up as an anomalous, biracial kid in small Southern and Midwestern towns, Wei became attuned at a young age to subtext – the stories behind the stories. Offered concurrently with the exhibition We Believed in the Sun, Dead Languages explores Wei’s memories of living through desegregation in the American South, one lived experience that reflects many others, past and present, as we navigate public spaces and shared institutions daily. We Believed in the Sun is on view in our Mary LeFlore Clements Oklahoma Gallery May 6 – Aug. 9.
