BEND: Kimi Maeda @ Brandeis University

Japanese American theatre artist, Kimi Maeda, will be performing at Brandeis University next week.

If memory forms our personal, cultural, and even racial identity, what does it mean when memories are lost? BEND examines the lives of two men interned in a Japanese American Relocation Camp during WWII: the artist's father, Robert Maeda who taught Asian art history at Brandeis for three decades and is currently suffering from dementia, and the subject of his research, Isamu Noguchi, the half-Japanese-half-American sculptor.

Q&A and reception to follow.

Presented by the Department of Fine Arts and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies as part of their Art and Gender: Global Perspectives series. Co-sponsored by the Comparative Literature and Culture Program and funded by the Brandeis Arts Council.
