11/25/10 A Special No-Thanks Holiday with Art at the I-Hotel and Immigrant Stories from Crossing East

Join us for a special No Thanks holiday episode.

We’ll hear segments from the award-winning documentary, Crossing East. What did the early Asians who traveled east, across the Pacific, find when they arrived at this land we now call America? (See more below)

We also chop it up with Jerome Reyes, project director for Until Today: Specters for the International Hotel, a complex art exhibition currently taking place at the International Hotel Manilatown Center and receiving critical praise from Art in America, Art Practical, and KQED Arts.

The exhibition closes on December 4 with a staged reading of Karen Tei Yamashita’s National Book Award nominated novel, I-Hotel, on Saturday, December 3 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, December 4 at 4:30 p.m.
