Migration Narratives - Pelham Art Center
Add to Calendar 31-01-2014 29-03-2014 15 Migration Narratives The Pelham Art Center is pleased to announce a group exhibition of kinetic sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, and video narratives by six contemporary artists. Migration Narratives will be on view from Jan. 31-Mar. 29, 2014 with an opening reception and all age hands-on workshop on Friday, January 31 from 6:30-8pm. Admission is free and open to the public. This multi-media exhibition relates stories of individual transitions from one state of being to another. Lisa A. Banner is an independent curator and art historian who is a Visiting Associate Professor at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. Migration Narratives are the stories of individual transitions from one state of being to another. They are stories, or narratives, that mark and divine changes in life that take place along that trajectory from one place, physical and spiritual, to another. Historical Migration Narratives are the histories of freed slaves who moved north, away from what was known and binding - slavery, captivity, oppression - to something that was completely unknown and new - self-determination, discovery, and experimentation with life. When applied to contemporary life, this concept of a migration narrative reveals the personal histories of families and individuals, as they move through and across time, to new places. Immigration, a movement into a new place, like Migration, the movement of creatures from one habitat to another, is not determined by physical or political statements or borders, but by the inner need and determination to move, and change one's situation, be it internal or external, determined by self, or by nature. Artists who are new immigrants, first generation Americans, or reflective immigrants to a new way of life are expressive storytellers of such personal narratives. Their stories have a broad appeal. Monika Bravo, Erika Harrsch, Timothy Hawkesworth, Maria Noel, Eliana Perez, and Christopher Smith reflect differing ways of seeing these migrations of people through time, and through states of being. Their work is expressed in kinetic sculpture, installation, drawing, painting, and video narratives. About the Curator Lisa A. Banner is an independent curator and art historian who is a Visiting Associate Professor at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. She has published several artist interviews with Site95 Journal, in addition to extensive publications on Spanish Baroque art in Master Drawings, and a recent catalog of Spanish Drawings in the Princeton University Art Museum (Yale University Press, 2013). As an independent curator she has worked on shows for The Frick Collection, the Museo del Prado, and other venues. Banner has also been a Research Fellow at the National Gallery of Canada, and Samuel H. Kress Curatorial Fellow at The Hispanic Society of America. Recently, she curated several contemporary art exhibitions, including "Light Matter," and "Vital Signs: The Enigma of Identity" at the Pelham Art Center, as well as a series of installations in the Great Hall at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, and a forthcoming exhibition in the Schafler Gallery at Pratt Institute.
