Book Club: Butterfly's Child by Angela Davis-Gardner
Besides the monumental sculptures and paintings on view in Blurred Lines, artist Jun Kaneko has designed costumes and sets for a number of major operas including Madame Butterfly. For this edition of the Under the Roof Cloud Book Club, we’ll dig deep into Madame Butterfly as we read Angela-Davis Gardener’s Butterfly’s Child, an imaginative “sequel” to the classic opera that Pulitzer prize-winning author Jennifer Egan claims that she could not put down. We’ll discuss the book, watch some clips of Kaneko’s vision of the story and tour the Blurred Lines exhibition.
