A Journey Not Soon Forgotten

On View: July 9 - September 4, 2022

First Floor Galleries, Experimental and Truland Galleries

A Journey Not Soon Forgotten explores the global impacts of migration. This exhibition follows the practices of nine artists who have either immigrated to the United States themselves or are the children of immigrants. The artwork on display showcases the physicality, spirituality, and conceptuality that is birthed through migration. Artists in this exhibition are working through ideas of lineage and labor while also examining political interests and significant historical events – domestic and abroad – that affect their self-identity and many of the people(s) they care about. A Journey Not Soon Forgotten features artists that share their personal experiences with migration in an effort to advocate for the interests of these global communities.

A Journey Not Soon Forgotten is curated by Thomas James, independent curator and Executive Director of the Last Resort Artist Retreat in Baltimore, MD.

The exhibition includes work by nine artists: Jessica Elena Aquino, Antonius-Tin Bui & Theresa-Xuan Bui, Ainsley Burrows, Lehna Huie, Sam Husseini, Thiang Uk, Fahimeh Vahdat, You Wu, and Helen Zughaib.
