Seeking Female Migrant Artists for Workshops, Publication and Exhibition.

The Meeting Point will  comprise of a series of dialogues and art exhibition with 10-15 artists across the geographic perimeters of the research to join in the dialogue and art exhibition.

Goals: Create a network for collaboration among female artists of migrant/displaced origins. While also collectively presenting findings on patterns, trends and motivations of migration through creative practice-visual arts and publication.

Throughout the project, we will utilize the theme of fluidity and personal narratives to analyze  our stories, experiences and works of art. These works will aim to demonstrate how female artists of migrant bodies redefine belonging, particularly national belonging, through global movement and community making practices.

Throughout our exploration there will be movement from discussions to text to the body—as it occurs in these genres—demonstrates the variety of representational strategies that dismantle static and binary readings of what it means to be a migrant woman. The artists will be also examining the collections to see how their experiences resonate with the historical.

Each element of the work will consider baring the identity-making practices engendered by literary and artistic expression to form new discourse.
