Adjua Gargi Nzinga Greaves will emcee an elegant evening celebrating the brief history and subtle art of the curators’ intro, with poet Rijard Bergeron and choreographer Niall Jones reading beloved and noteworthy introductory remarks culled from our community of curators and readers and audience over the past twenty years or so, accompanied by composer Robert Ouyang Rusli. A limited edition publication of this talk will be available for purchase at and after the event.
