FACE OF A NATION: What Happened to the World’s Fair?
With Director Mina Chow
Thursday, November 15, 7 p.m.
Room 132, Performing Arts and Humanities Building
In conjunction with the exhibition A Designed Life: Contemporary American Textiles, Wallpapers, and Containers & Packaging, 1951 – 1954, the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture (CADVC) presents FACE OF A NATION: What Happened to the World’s Fair?, a film by architect Mina Chow that explores the controversy surrounding American participation in World’s Fairs.
FACE OF A NATION captures the erosion of the American image as the country loses sight of its vision and values. Probing deeply into national identity, architect Mina Chow investigates the controversy surrounding U.S. participation at World’s Fairs for the last 25 years. The film asks important questions about the country’s role in the world and perceptions of the American image. With our diminished presence at World’s Fairs, have we lost sight of what it means to be American?
Admission to the screening is free and open to the public.
