October 5 - December 14

Making Migration Visible: Traces, Tracks & Pathways exhibition at MECA’s Institute of Contemporary Art.

Migration, mobility, and displacement is the story of our era. Fears about human mobility and border crossers are reshaping politics; climate change promises to cause massive displacements; global leaders are scrambling to reconfigure and secure borders; people everywhere are moving to find safe lives for their families.  The artists in Making Migration Visible: Traces, Tracks & Pathwayschallenge the idea that migration is an exception or a crisis, showing viewers that migration is now the norm, inscribed in our landscapes, memories, bodies, and imaginings. What kind of a world do we want to create in this era of great mobility?

In addition to the ICA exhibition, Making Migration Visible is a state-wide initiative featuring events by dozens of partnering organizations offering parallel exhibitions, film screenings, performances, lectures, community dinners, poetry, and more.

The initiative also includes a day-long symposium, ART+POLITICS, on November 2nd that is open to the public.
