“Where Do We Migrate To?”, a national touring exhibition organized by the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture (CADVC), was reviewed for the June/July issue of Art in America. The exhibit was curated by Niels Van Tomme, director of arts and media at Provisions Learning Project in Washington, DC, and features 19 internationally-recognized artists and art collectives.
The works exhibited deal in various mediums with the subject of migration, ranging from the two video pieces by Kimsooja and Julika Rudelius which anchor the exhibition, to more sculptural and installation-oriented work by Blane De St. Croix and the French collective Claire Fontaine, and photographic prints by Xaviera Simmons, to name just a few. Markus characterized the exhibition as a success, saying that “intelligent curatorial decisions transformed what might have been a straightforward thematic survey into a thought-provoking examination of the discontinuities that persist in our steadily globalizing world.”
“Where Do We Migrate To?” was featured from February 3 to April 15 in the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery of the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center, which is part of the Parsons New School for Design in New York City. It is being exhibited at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans from June 30 to October 7 according to Markus’ review, and will travel from there to the Ruben Center for the Visual Arts in El Paso, Texas, for dates to be announced.
