Carry Over: New Voices from the Global African Diaspora
June 10 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Each of these women artists exposes audiences to the varied, lived experiences of migration, and the wide range of themes surrounding it. Concerned with both the tangible and intangible matter that women carry, each artist positions women as the driving forces who carry memories, stories, emotions, traditions, artifacts, objects, culture, religion, science, and technology as they move through time and space. In a period when women make up half of those migrating, and their stories are often excluded from the narratives of migration, this exhibition puts women of African descent at the forefront, expanding the discourses of migration and the processes of identifying oneself and community in the context of social and cultural transit
