Description

New Exhibition: Migration Narratives

Migration Narratives

January 31 – March 29, 2014

 

Free opening reception and all-age art workshop:

Friday, January 31, 6:30-8:00pm

 

Curator Talk:

Thursday, February 27, 2014, 6pm


Pelham Art Center is pleased to announce a group exhibition of kinetic sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, and video narratives by seven contemporary artists. Migration Narratives will be on view from January 31 – March 29, 2014 with an opening reception and all age hands-on workshop on Friday, January 31 from 6:30-8:00pm.  Admission is free and open to the public. This multi-media exhibition relates stories of individual transitions from one state of being to another. Independent Curator, Lisa A. Banner is an art historian and Visiting Associate Professor at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Additional FREE public programming will include a Curator Talk on Thursday, February 27, 6pm.

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 and across time, to new places.

Immigration, a movement into a new place, like Migration, the movement of creatures from one habitat to another, is not determined by physical or political statements or borders, but by the inner need and determination to move, and change one's situation, be it internal or external, determined by self, or by nature.

Artists who are new immigrants, first generation Americans, or reflective immigrants to a new way of life are expressive storytellers of such personal narrative. Their stories have a broad appeal. Monika Bravo, Erika Harrsch, Timothy Hawkesworth, Doug Jeck, María Noël, Eliana Pérez, and Christopher Smith reflect differing ways of seeing these migrations of people through time, and through states of being. Their work is expressed in kinetic sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, and video narratives.
