CROSSING CULTURES: Family, Memory, and Displacement

Artists: Astrid Reischwitz, Claudia Ruiz Gustafson, Nilou Moochhala, Vivian Poey

“CROSSING CULTURES” addresses the theme of “family” from the point of view of four women artists who came to this country as young adults, leaving their traditions, families, and cultures behind. Unifying their work is its relationship to memory, displacement and identity. The exhibit will revolve around art that they have created to reflect upon what they have left behind while shifting countries and at the same time honoring and remembering family traditions and vanishing ways of life. A commonality of their work is the use of vintage family photographs that they have collected from their many visits back to their homelands. This project embodies and celebrates their shared immigrant story and citizenry in a nation composed of diverse backgrounds, families, politics, faiths, identities, and ideas.

Comment by juror Jessica Hong: “This group exhibition engages simultaneously timely and timeless themes of home, migration, displacement, and individual and collective memory. The artists highlight both the uniqueness and common stories of migration by weaving together their own family photographs with digital imagery, giving form to previous memories in order to create new ones, coalescing the past, present, and future.”
