Artists, Immigration, and Activism: A Panel and Community Conversation

What is the role of the artist in addressing social issues? What does it mean to be American? How has art been a catalyst for immigrant justice?

Participate in a timely conversation with four local artists who create artwork that engages with the topic of immigration. Moderated by activist critic and curator Susan Platt, the panelists will demonstrate how their art is a springboard for conversation around contemporary immigration issues.

Before the panel, be sure to visit TAM’s related exhibitions: “Zhi LIN: In Search of the Lost History of Chinese Migrants and the Transcontinental Railroads” and “Immigrant Artists and the American West”.
