> DESCRIPTION

To kick-off Proximities 2: Knowing Me, Knowing You (titled after a 1976 hit song by the pop sensation ABBA), the museum will host a karaoke lounge in Samsung Hall. Taking inspiration from the theme of the show—examining Asia through family and shared experience—this lounge pays tribute to the spirit of karaoke, the global pastime that brings people together through popular music. Guest curator Glen Helfand introduces the theme of the exhibition with an in-gallery talk to start off the program, and the fun picks up with a challenge to see who offers the most dynamic performance of the afternoon, whether ABBA, Whitney, Linda Ronstadt, or a wild card selection. KJ Kendoke (Kenneth Fate) presides over the festivities. Get ready and prepare your selection from the karaoke song book
