Migration Narratives


Friday, January 31, 2014
10:00 am - 5:00 pm



A group exhibition of kinetic sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, and video narratives by 6 contemporary artists. Curator Lisa A. Banner. Migration Narratives are the stories of individual transitions from one state of being to another. They are stories, or narratives, that mark and divine changes in life that take place along that trajectory from one place, physical and spiritual, to another. Historical Migration Narratives are the histories of freed slaves who moved north, away from what was known and binding—slavery, captivity, oppression—-to something that was completely unknown and new—self-determination, discovery, and experimentation with life—-and both types of narratives are deeply human. When applied to contemporary life, this concept of a migration narrative reveals the personal histories of families, and individuals, as they move through time.
