Please join us for an evening to mark the publication of "The Home Show", hosted by Asad Raza and contributors to the book.

The Home Show is inspired by Asad Raza’s performative evolution of the apartment exhibition, held at his apartment in New York City. Artists, friends and family were invited to contribute artworks, sounds, performative instructions, and rituals to the show, and every visitor received a tour from Raza.
