Victoria-Idongesit Udondian--interdisciplinary artist and 2020-21 UB Center for Diversity Innovation Distinguished Visiting Scholar at University at Buffalo in the Department of Art--will turn the Arts Collaboratory’s The Space Between into an art media lab/studio where immigrants, first-generation Americans are invited to collaborate in the process of creating while sharing their own stories. Àdápé is a part of an ongoing project, The Republic of Unknown Territory, a multimedia installation/performance project that interrogates notions of border control and immigration.

At a time when immigrants are vilified and nationalistic biases increasingly divide developed nations, we begin to consider how this situation is impacting immigrant populations and communities mostly during a pandemic. The Republic of Unknown Territory asks us to consider the global migration of people and questions the state of society without the contributions of immigrant populations. Please join us in this collaboration.
