Showing a few works from roots/home and one from signature print, in this beautiful exhibition curated by Vanessa Giorgo, with 7 other amazing second generation artists.
nb you need to rsvp to Vanessa (email on the flyer) to attend in Southend on 24th/25th!
I’ll post the link to the online exhibition when available.
…This exhibition will explore the complex perspectives of second-generation immigrants around their lived experiences regarding their balancing of their cultures and their oscillation between feelings of belonging to the ‘motherland/s’ and the ‘promised-land’. Do they put down roots and become assimilated in the new culture or do they carry their ancestors’ heritage and try to reproduce it – are their parents’ cultural traditions passed down on them and their descendants more often than not? Do they create new traditions in their country of birth?
