Today we are happy to announce news about past contributor Rosanna Oh. Rosanna’s poetry will be the subject of an upcoming poetry exhibition, titled Erasures, at the Queens Historical Society in New York City on December 2, 2018.
Erasures takes its title from a poem by Rosanna Oh, and it refers to a key theme throughout the work that is featured in this exhibition. The poem, in which a daughter reflects on her father’s and family’s past, considers erasure in the context of immigrant identity and transnational narratives. What does it mean to leave a place in which one’s self is rooted? Who or what gets left behind — and, conversely, carried over to the new country?
The exhibit also includes the work of writers who have greatly influenced Rosanna. Loide Marwanga is the exhibition designer.
