You! Yes, you! Be a participant in Laurel Nakadate's Open Confession
 
SUNDAY APRIL 28th 
4-6 PM, VW Dome

In celebration of the publication of her book 365 DAYS: A CATALOGUE OF TEARS, Laurel Nakadate invites everyone who reads these lines to come to MoMA PS1 to confess, detail, and atone for shameful acts of the past. These public apologies will stand in for more intimate acts of apology for the time being, and may result in feelings of well-being and relief for those who have been carrying around burdens, great and small.

If you would like to come to the podium for a specific apology (3 minutes or less), please e-mail videoassistant@gmail.com.
