Bundith Phunsombatlert (ACC 2007) Brooklyn-Brooklyn-based community gardener/organizer Vere Gibbs, historian/curator Jack Tchen, and art critic/curator Lilly Wei, discuss Phunsombatlert's artistic practice and their own through the lenses of decolonization and grassroots community engagement. 

Artist Phunsombatlert interviewed Gibbs along with tens of Brooklyn-based elders of the Afro-Caribbean diaspora for the creation of his artworks focusing on the trans-Atlantic slave trade, migration, and memory. Phunsombatlert wove their conversation and a chorus of community voices into the artwork currently on view at Central Library. 

From the Caribbean to Brooklyn, from Asia to the United States—from wherever your migration journey has taken you-- join us in community, storytelling, and art.

The artist will bring plants from the series.
