The Moth Virtual StorySLAM: Nostalgia — Yoshitomo Nara
Join us for an evening of art and storytelling in this StorySLAM co-produced with The Moth, the acclaimed storytelling nonprofit. StorySLAM is a community-focused, open-mic storytelling competition in which anyone can share a five-minute story on the night’s theme.
The theme “Nostalgia” is a nod to the exhibition Yoshitomo Nara. Nara is among the most beloved Japanese artists of his generation. Nara’s work reflects the raw encounters with his inner self, taking inspiration from childhood memories and passion for music, an interest he cultivated since age nine.
Ticketing will close at 6:30 pm on Friday, March 12.
