Comunidades Visibles (Visible Communities): The Materiality of Migration brings together artworks by first- or second-generation immigrant Latinx artists at the Albright-Knox Northland location. In their creative practices, these artists celebrate their communities and interrogate the materials and stories that form their foundations. These artists--Carolina Aranibar-Fernandez, Esperanza Cortéz, Patrick Martinez, Raúl de Nieves, Ronny Quevedo, and Felipe Shibuya--will also be engaging with UB students and faculty through an artist residency through the Creative Arts Iniative.
As part of this residency, the Albright-Knox is hosting a series of virtual screenings of films selected by the artists for their relationship to the themes of Comunidades Visibles (Visible Communities). Throughout this series, participants will hear from community speakers and educators who are exploring the ways narratives around migration, as well as personal and communal histories, are discussed through various media.
All screenings are FREE and open to the public. Registration required. Registered participants will receive a link to join this virtual event the morning of the program
