Where Do We Migrate To? Exhibition at Sheila C. Johnson Design Center
After it opened last year at the Center for Art, Design, and Visual Culture in Baltimore, the exhibition Where Do We Migrate To? travels to New York, where it will be on view at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center at Parsons The New School for Design from February 3 to April 15. Curated by Niels Van Tomme, Director of Arts and Media at Provisions Learning Project in Washington, DC, Where Do We Migrate To? explores contemporary issues of migration as well as experiences of displacement and exile. Situating the contemporary individual in a world of advanced globalization, the artworks address how a multiplicity of migratory encounters demand an increasingly complex understanding of the human condition. As such, the exhibition allows multiple perspectives about its subject matter to unfold simultaneously, opening up a range of political, psychological, poetic, and pragmatic manifestations of the contemporary migrant experience.
Flanders House is a proud sponsor of the exhibition. This event is free to the public so we hope to see many of you there!
Where Do We Migrate To? features the work of nineteen internationally recognized artists and collectives, including: Acconci Studio, Svetlana Boym, Blane De St. Croix, Lara Dhondt, Brendan Fernandes, Claire Fontaine, Nicole Franchy, Andrea Geyer, Isola and Norzi, Kimsooja, Pedro Lasch, Adrian Piper, Raqs Media Collective, Société Réaliste, Julika Rudelius, Xaviera Simmons, Fereshteh Toosi, Philippe Vandenberg, and Eric Van Hove.
