On view through December 31, 2022
516 ARTS
Albuquerque, New Mexico

516 ARTS presents “MIGRATORY,” led by renowned Mexican artist Minerva Cuevas as part of her “International Understanding Foundation.” “MIGRATORY” was developed as a conceptual structure highlighting solidarity networks and creative environments in El Paso and Ciudad Juárez. The artworks in the exhibition are created by multiple artists with Cuevas, bringing together a mural in the gallery, prints, video, glass, and the “Migratory Yellow Pages / La Seccíon Amarilla de la Migracíon.” This book provides information for migrants to have a welcoming transit and is comprised of contributions from local and international visual artists, writers, and organizations. From poetry and visual art to practical resources, the book is meant to be a welcoming handbook and cultural resource for asylum seekers and people in transit.
