E.TAY Gallery is pleased to present People I Love Who Are Far Away: A Group Show in Support of the New York Immigration Coalition, curated by Gina Malek and Christina Papanicolaou. The show features artists whose practices have been touched in some way by migration. The works embrace issues that intersect with immigration including human rights, international politics, absence, colonialism and identity.
The opening event will feature talks by NYIC leaders outlining action and goals for 2018. There will also be a special performance by Victoria Udondian that interrogates the nature of borders, immigration, and privilege by simulating and recontextualizing the frustrating experience of obtaining a visa at a customs office. Tickets to the opening will be sold with all proceeds going to NYIC. All sales will be split 50/50 between NYIC and the artists. Those who attend will have the opportunity to network with others interested in immigration reform and advocacy. The exhibition intends to bring together a community around artwork that embraces the mission of the NYIC.
Featured artists include:
Maria de Los Angeles
David Rios Ferreira
Tomas Vu & Rirkrit Tiravanija
