About this commission
MigrantScape is an audiovisual installation documenting the stories of four immigrants of differing immigration statuses living in New York and El Paso. The piece contends with the individuals’ relationship to America’s immigration system and increased border militarization. MigrantScape calls on viewers to reflect on the personal tolls that a restrictive, fear-based system creates. The piece is accompanied by archival research and interviews available at migrantscape.com.
The artist will perform a DJ set incorporating sounds from the installation on The Shed’s Plaza at 5:30 pm on August 25 as part of this commission.
