Where Do We Migrate To?

September 8 – December 9, 2016
Peeler Art Center, University Gallery (lower level)

Where Do We Migrate To? explores diverging ways in which forms of migration, experiences of displacement, and questions of belonging have been addressed by artists in recent years. Displaying a multiplicity of migratory encounters, the exhibition presents multiple perspectives about its subject matter, opening up a range of political, psychological, poetic, and pragmatic manifestations of the contemporary migrant experience.
