Art and Migration Forum at R.A.C.C.O.O.N. This Friday Night, 7pm
Just a reminder that I’m moderating a discussion this Friday Night at 7pm with Mirko Ilic at an artists space devoted to artists from the former Yugoslavia. Everyone is welcome! The space is in Long Island City and is quite close to PS1 – but print the directions below because the streets in Queens are quite confusing
Best wishes,
