I will have to miss the opening myself due to work/travel abroad, but I am excited to invite you all to the group exhibition, "Status".
"Status" aims to salutes and honors human expressions rather than speak to the question of individuals immigration status in their adopted temporary or permanent home.
Curated by Zahra Banyamerian, "Status" invites you to leave the dominant narratives about immigrants and immigration behind and embrace the artists' responses to the question of self, the socio-politics and/or poetics of the(ir) world. The exhibition features works by eleven artists, from the New York Foundation for the Art’s Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program, who outline their status in artistic expression not their movement into the world.
