Here Now: Art and Migration

March 8 at 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Here Now brings together a group of international and regional artists whose work explores concepts of borders, movement, and migration across local urban centers and global geographies. Through their choice of materials and visual languages, these artists challenge conventional notions of borders as fixed. They reimagine borders as sites of historical investigations, social reckoning, and conduits of an emerging aesthetic. Here Now features artists who through their creative practice, define their place in the here-and-now. Confirmed artists include Sajjad Abbas (Baghdad, Iraq), Teresa Baker (Los Angeles, CA), Lydia Nakashima Degarrod (Oakland, CA), Verónica Gaona (Houston, TX), Paula Higa (Burlington, VT), Matthew Schrader (Middlebury, VT), Edra Soto (Chicago, IL).

Here Now is co-curated by Dr. Sarah Rogers, Visiting Asst. Prof. of History of Art & Architecture, Middlebury College and Heather Ferrell, BCA’s Curator and Director of Exhibitions.

Gallery Hours: Wednesdays-Fridays, 12-5 pm & Saturdays, 12-8 pm

The 2024 exhibition year is presented by Mascoma Bank. Sponsored in part by the Maslow Family Foundation. Hospitality sponsors, Lake Champlain Chocolates, Farrell Distributing, and William Hill Estate Winery.
