Additional time info:

This exhibition includes a City of Asylum reading room and special installation from Tuhin Das from Sept. 22 through Nov. 1. For the opening on Sept 22 we will host special programming in partnership with the Arts and the Law Committee of the Allegheny County Bar Association, ACLU of Pennsylvania, City of Asylum and their writer-in-residence Tuhin Das. 
Tuhin Das (Bangladesh) is a poet, activist, political columnist, short story writer and essayist. He was born and raised in Barisal, Bangladesh. He is the author of seven poetry books in his native language (Bengali). He was involved in the Little Magazine Movement and edited a few literary magazines; he’s had contemporary poetry criticism articles, short stories and political columns published in the last fifteen years in Bangladesh.

Since 2013, he has been the target of fundamentalist militant groups who have murdered secular writers and activists in Bangladesh. Instead of protecting him, the police collected and examined his writings for anti-Islamist statements to use against him. To save his own life, he had no choice but to go into hiding and find a way out of Bangladesh. He left his country on April 2016. Tuhin Das is now the current ICORN writer-in-residence of City of Asylum in Pittsburgh.
