Songs and tales have long been used as a tool to preserve cultural memory, reproduce cultural norms and social ethics across borders and time. Inspired by their own family lineage’s experience with migration from Greece to Turkey, Sounds like Home: Longing and Comfort through Lullabies curators Duygu and Bengü Gün uncover how lullabies can be a source of comfort when longing for home and place, challenges it’s subliminal messaging that reproduces oppressive power structures and affirms that culture is fluid.

Sounds Like Home: Longing and Comfort through Lullabies launches with a free virtual reception on July 15, 6–8 PM PST! The virtual opening reception brings artists, curators, and musicians together deep into the world of lullabies. Featuring a curator and artist discussion followed by musical performances, this virtual opening reception brings artists, musicians, and guests into the world of lullabies.
