Art for Change cordially invites you to the closing reception of:

"Gateway: An Artistic Response to the Immigration Crisis"

@ 2082 Lexington Ave. at 126th Street
New York City, NY

"Gateway: An Artistic Response to the Immigration Crisis", is a group exhibition installed over 14,500 square feet, showcasing artworks by international and national artists Patricia Cazorla, Esperanza Cortes, Aissa H. Deebi, Roberto De Jesus, Laura F. Gibellini, Marissa A. GutiƩrrez- Vicario, Alejandro Endoke Makuendo Guzman, Gabriel Pacheco, Tara Parsons, Michael Pribich, Elisa Pritzker, Gabriel Reese, Christina Stahr, The Border Project and Nancy Saleme, with a special installation by Michael Sherman.

Through drawings, sculptures, and site-specific installations, artists explore historical and contemporary narratives within immigration, including: acculturation; gentrification; economic inequality; discrimination and racism; the "culture of exile" and plight of refugees; immigration policies, regulations and reform; and the controversial roles played by politicians, activist groups, and privatized media.


Finished! Here is the completed video of Not Without A Trace that I've been working on for the last year, thanks to Sandra Koponen for her skills with the camera, in the edit room, and musically! Please check it out on this Vimeo link.
