Moheb Soliman: HOMES
December 4, 2021 @ EST 1:00 pm - 1:45 pmFree
Hybrid event: In-person and virtual tickets available (free but registration required)
Moheb Soliman’s HOMES maps the shoreline of the Great Lakes from the rocky North Shore of Minnesota to the Thousand Islands of eastern Ontario. This poetic travelogue offers an intimate perspective on an immigrant experience as Soliman drives his Corolla past exquisite vistas and abandoned mines, through tourist towns and midwestern suburbs, seeking to inhabit an entire region as home.
“HOMES is a meditation on, and a prayer for, the natural world through the body of the Great Lakes. This spectacular book is as inventive and daring as it is tender and piercing—in syncopated lyric like a genetic sequence, a spliced analog for elegy.” —Fady Joudah
