People I Love Who Are Far Away

E-Tay Gallery

February 1—22, 2018

New York, NY

Curated by Christina Papanicola and Gina Malek

Our exhibition focuses on artists whose practices have been touched in some way by migration. The works embrace issues that intersect with immigration including human rights, international politics, absence, colonialism and identity– revealing the capacity of art to speak to the strength and resilience of the immigrant community. There will also be a special performance by Victoria Udondian that interrogates the nature of borders, immigration, and privilege by simulating and recontextualizing the frustrating experience of obtaining a visa at a customs office.
