Stories of Migration: Contemporary Artists Interpret Diaspora

The George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum, with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy, present the exhibition Stories of Migration: Contemporary Artists Interpret Diaspora.

In this timely exhibition, forty-four artists share personal and universal stories of migration—from historic events that scattered communities across continents to today’s accounts of migrants and refugees adapting to a new homeland. Co-organized with Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) and with assistance from George Washington University’s Diaspora Program in the Elliott School of International Affairs.
