Migration - Art Exhibition

Presented by Art Works Downtown at Art Works Downtown

ArtWorks Downtown – 1337 Gallery

While the definition of migration typically refers to the intentional movement from one place to another, we can point to this action being present in both our personal lives and on a global stage. Movements of individuals, communities, cultures and climate conditions have shaped history and continue to craft our current moment.

Migration offers an exploration of this condition by the following artists.

Featuring: Naomi Alessandra, Jose Maro Alvarado, Jenny Balisle, Della Barnett, Cynthia Brannvall, Barry Beach, Ulla de Larios, Lori Katz, Eric Kelly, Julia Ledyard, Isaac Lewin, Stela Mandel, Gary Marsh, Lara Myers, Janet Norris, Marianne Owens, Tijuana Rick, Ignacio Rojas, Susan Ryan, Jennifer Kim Sohn, Cecelia Thorner, Stephanie Thwaites, Sue Weil, Tyler Wilkins, Emil Yanos, Erin Zerega, Jane Zich

Juror: Emily A. Kuhlmann, Director of Exhibitions and Curatorial Affairs of the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco.

Please join us at our receptions during 2nd Friday ArtWalk, on Oct. 13 and Nov. 10.
