Museum of Contemporary Photography                                      

Saturday, February 23, 2019

This Columbia College affiliated museum is one of Chicago’s treasures showing thought-provoking work by internationally renowned photographers. We’ll investigate Stateless: Views of Global Migration by eight photographers who have experienced personal migration. The artists are dealing with contradictions inherent to the crisis, finding beauty and strength in the face of collective trauma. Their powerful images portray memories and connections to places where it may no longer be possible to return. The artists include Bissane Al-Charif of Palestinian background who grew up in Syria; Israeli artist Simon Attie deals with Israeli and Palestinian refugees in NY City; Daniel Castro Garcia from England working in Sicily; Fidencio Fifeld-Perez from Oaxaca, Mexico, but raised in North Carolina and Omar Imam from Syrian now in Amsterdam as well as, Leila Alaoui,and Hiwa K.
