how the light gets in

September 7 @ 10:00 am - December 8 @ 5:00 pm

Free

An exhibition of contemporary art about the movement of people across the globe and the welcome cracks that develop in our notions of borders and nation states. how the light gets in and its accompanying programs, while impossible to be comprehensive, are about hope at a time in which migration has become one of the most pressing issues for humanity. Artists can make the heavily mediated mass-migration crisis more tangible, representing often difficult and controversial ideas, and playing a critical role in helping people understand the complicated politics and emotions of the im/migrant experience.
