Performance: No-No Boy

Presented by Frist Art Museum at Frist Art Museum, Nashville TN

Dec 17 2022
Performance: No-No Boy

Join the Frist Art Museum for this special performance, presented in conjunction with Weaving Splendor: Treasures of Asian Textiles from The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

No-No Boy is an immersive multimedia work blending original folk songs, storytelling, and projected archival images, all in service of illuminating hidden American histories. Taking inspiration from his own family’s history living through the Vietnam War as well as many other stories of Asian American experiences, Dr. Julian Saporiti has transformed years of doctoral study into an innovative project that bridges a divide between art and scholarship.

By turning his archival research and fieldwork into a large repertoire of folk songs and films, Saporiti has been able to engage diverse audiences in difficult conversations, performing with a revolving cast of collaborators everywhere from rural high schools and churches to Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall.
