Host Thu Vo Le: A Fine Line
Who owns a tattoo design? And who should be allowed to get that design?
Inspired by the exhibition Tattoo This featuring the work of tattooist and visual artist Amanda Wachob, we're having a conversation about authorship and cultural appropriation in tattooing and body art moderated by tattoo artist Thu Vo Le of Sol Tribe Tattoo.
Kitchen Table brings together artists, activists, and scholars for conversations over dinner using the current exhibitions as a starting point for discussion. Reservations are required, and seating is extremely limited. Each pop-up dinner features a different host and a different theme. Tickets include admission to the museum, dinner, and non-alcoholic beverages. Beer, wine, and cocktails are available for purchase. The dinner menu is presented by Two Sistah's Eats & Treats. Vegetarian meals are available upon request. Due to the intimate nature of the event, we are unable to accommodate other dietary restrictions.
Cost: $10 | for members and non-members
Thu Vo Le was born in Vietnam and raised in America. He started tattooing in 2006 and co-owned a tattoo studio for four years in Nashville. Three years ago he left his hometown to explore tattooing and all that entails. He currently tattoos at Sol Tribe Tattoo on Broadway.
