Between Worlds: Stories of Artists and Migration

Opening Celebration on October 1

While humans have always settled and resettled, the economic, geopolitical, and climate circumstances of the 20th and 21st centuries have prompted a vast number of people to migrate. Between Worlds: Stories of Artists and Migration explores how artists use their practice to speak to these stories of the global movement of people and objects. Featuring the artwork of 48 artists and encompassing a range of stories, this exhibition features the work of both well-known and underrepresented artists and brings new perspectives to narratives of migration.
