Stories of Migration: Contemporary Artists Interpret Diaspora


Stories of Migration: Contemporary Artists Interpret Diaspora


April 16, 2016–September 4, 2017

In this timely exhibition, 44 artists shared personal and universal stories of migration — from historic events that scattered communities across continents to today’s accounts of migrants and refugees adapting to a new homeland. Read the gallery guide and catalog for Stories of Migration.
