6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Pelham Art Center presents IN/FLUX (Sept. 20th – Nov. 2nd), a visual art exhibition of people in flux, or an influx of people, bringing together immigrant and first generation artists curated by Executive Director Charlotte Mouquin and Gallery Advisory Board Member Victoria Rolett. Each artist responds to immigration stories through their unique vantage point in a time of diverging world views. Challenging norms, these artists place an up-close lens on historical and present-day issues surrounding traversing the globe, including the travails of oppression betwixt borders. Utilizing a variety of art media, they reflect the complexity of immigrant experience through installation, sculpture, encaustic, photography, design, collage, and bio art.
Artists: Corina S. Alvarezdelugo (Venezuelan/American) , Selin Balci (Turkish), Nicky Enright (Ecuadorian-American), David Rios Ferreira (first generation Puerto Rican), Alejandra Hernandez (first generation Mexican), Jenny Polak (British), Omid Shekari (Iranian), Ruben Natal San Miguel (Puerto Rican), Natalia Nakazawa (first generation Uruguayan/Japanese American) and Victoria-Idongesit Udondian (Nigerian).
Author Nikay Paredes will perform a live poetry reading at the reception.
