PosterHospitality entails responding to the call at the door and opening up one’s home to a guest who will either accept or refuse the invitation to come in and enter. Absolute, pure, or unconditional hospitality, however, entails inviting anyone, including an unexpected guest or stranger, into one’s home, and on a larger scale, opening the gates to cross national borders for everyone, challenging the host’s identity, and creating a high-risk or precarious situation. Curated by Susette Min, Associate Professor of Asian American Studies, this exhibition explores the double-edged nature of hospitality – the desires and fears of enacting and receiving the act of hospitality. Featured artists include Andrea Bowers, Daniel Martinez, Dan Perjovschi, Kameelah Jana Rasheed, and Jin-me Yoon.
