This exhibition examines individual and global perspectives from which artists have engaged with issues surrounding migration. Featuring works by painter Carlos Alfonzo, multimedia artist Tiffany Chung, and the artistic collective SUPERFLEX, this installation focuses on personal, environmental, and economic factors that prompt the translocation of individuals across land and sea. In so doing, this group show facilitates conversations about inclusion, community, and belonging in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

On September 25, 2019, multimedia artist Tiffany Chung was interviewed at Sheldon by Tyler Green, host of The Modern Art Notes Podcast.
