Van Tran Nguyen – A Choir for MSG

 

A Choir for MSG is a performative dinner. Up to ten participants, through assigned roles, are asked to play different familial archetypes while they share a meal prepared by the artist. 

Our most recent performance of A Choir for MSG  was held on 3.15.17 at The WASH Project, see pictures above. $105 worth of proceeds from the dinner went to the International Institute of Buffalo. The space and wine were generously donated by The WASH Project. Supplies were provided by the artist and The Schoolyard.
