Here Now: Art and Migration

Here Now: Art and Migration brings together a group of international and national artists whose work explores concepts of borders, movement, and migration across local urban centers and global geographies. Through their choice of materials and visual languages, these artists challenge conventional notions of borders as fixed. They reimagine borders as sites of historical investigations, social reckoning, and conduits of an emerging aesthetic. Here Now: Art and Migration features artists who, through their creative practice, define their place in the here and now.

Featured Artists: Sajjad Abbas (Baghdad, Iraq), Teresa Baker (Los Angeles, CA), Lydia Nakashima Degarrod (Oakland, CA), Verónica Gaona (Houston, TX), Paula Higa (Williston, VT), Matthew Schrader (Middlebury, VT), and Edra Soto (Chicago, IL).

Here Now: Art and Migration is co-curated by Dr. Sarah Rogers, Visiting Assistant Professor of History of Art & Architecture, Middlebury College, and Heather Ferrell, Curator and Director of Exhibitions, BCA Center.
