As part of Migration, Carnegie Nexus and Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures are proud to host award-winning writer Viet Thanh Nguyen. Bold, elegant, and fiercely honest, Nguyen’s debut novel, The Sympathizer, won the Pulitzer Prize in 2016. His collection of stories, The Refugees, gives voice to lives led between two worlds, the adopted homeland and the country of birth.
Join Brian Cohen, Founder of The Documentary Works, a collaborative group of photographers, as he invites you into a more inclusive picture of our city and beyond with moving stories of passage, arrival, and the many encounters along the way.
Fatou will be performing her sweet smoky rhythms that originated from a homeland she escaped but one in which her art still resides.
Her much-anticipated spring 2018 record follows her critically acclaimed debut album Fatou (2011), which was the No.1 album on the world music charts for six months in 2011.
Carnegie Nexus commissioned four writers to write about their encounters with museum artworks and natural specimens. Join us for a live performance of newly crafted prose, sci-fi, and poetry by, among others, Toi Derricotte, award-winning poet and Cave Canem co-founder; and Tom Sweterlitsch, author of the Pittsburgh-based sci-fi novel, "Tomorrow and Tomorrow."
