Overview

Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) is pleased to present “Migrations and Meaning(s) in Art,” an exhibition curated by scholar and artist Deborah Willis, PhD, the inaugural Stuart B. Cooper Endowed Chair in Photography. Featuring a diverse range of local, national and international visual artists, the exhibition explores debates on the topic of migration from historical references such as slavery and emancipation; the Great Migration; and virtual communities from the Caribbean, Africa, Europe, the Americas and Asia. Willis selected artwork that considers “how identities are realized, rejected, performed and desired,” as well as the urgency of our present moment, following Nina Simone’s famous statement that artists’ duty is to reflect the times. The exhibition will include photographs, prints, video, animation and sculpture. RECEPTION: THURSDAY, JANUARY, 5:00 - 7:00 PM Gallery Hours: Mon - Sat| 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM Sun| 12:00 - 5:00 PM SEE WEBSITE FOR ADDITIONAL PROGRAMMING
