Beauty in Enormous Bleakness (BiEB) and its affiliated exhibition explores architecture’s relationship to issues of immigration, exclusion, and cultural identity in 20th-century American life, focusing on the design legacies of the mass-incarceration of individuals of Japanese descent during WWII. Through this exhibition and other means, BiEB collaborators document the lives and works of Japanese American architects who survived internment, focusing on their contributions to the post-war cultural landscape.
Free and open to all. Refreshments from 6–7 pm, followed by the opportunity to view the exhibition. Part of the Moonscape of the Mind symposium.
