American Sign Language Tour and Tea: Mika Rottenberg: Easypieces

About

Join us for an American Sign Language (ASL) tour of Mika Rottenberg: Easypieces led by Jennifer Eskridge-Hart. Please meet at the 2nd-floor admissions desk. The tour will be followed by complimentary tea in Marisol.

Using absurdist satire to address critical issues of our time, Mika Rottenberg offers subversive allegories for contemporary life. Her videos and installations interweave documentation with fiction, and often feature protagonists in factory-like settings who manufacture goods ranging from cultured pearls to millions of brightly colored plastic items sold wholesale in Chinese superstores.

This event is designed for the deaf community and is led entirely in American Sign Language (ASL). Spoken English interpretation is not provided. The MCA offers English-language, docent-led tours daily and a Spanish-language, docent-led tour on the first Sunday of every month.

Live interpretation events are organized by Meagan Burger, Manager of Adult Learning Programs.
