The Foreigner's Home explores novelist Toni Morrison’s artistic and intellectual vision through her 2006 exhibition at the Louvre. Through exclusive footage of Morrison in dialogue with artists, along with extensive archival footage, music, and photographs, the film presents a series of candid and incisive exchanges about race, identity, "foreignness," and art's redemptive power. 

The film screening starts at 1 pm, followed by a panel discussion at 2 pm.
