Artist in Residence: The Mash-Up Americans
The Greene Space Artist-in-Residence program hands the mic to ambitious artists, curators and collectives eager to connect with live audiences, creating something new together in real time.
Meet our Fall 2023 Artist in Residence!
The Mash-Up Americans is your guide to hyphen-America. Since 2013, they’ve been navigating the complexities of mash-up identity as they cross multiple borders, ask all of the awkward questions, and figure out what it means to live expansive, authentic, impactful lives. Diverse heritage and the future of the great melting pot that is America lies at the heart of their podcast.
The media company and boutique creative studio founded by podcast hosts Amy S. Choi and Rebecca Lehrer will present the “Ultimate Guide to a Mash-Up Life” which will explore topics that surround people navigating multiple cultures and discuss what it means to be an American in today’s world.
