Immigration: Hopes Realized, Dreams Derailed is a multimedia exhibition about immigration and detention on display at the Spaceworks Gallery. Curated by art critic Susan N. Platt and mural artist David Long, the exhibit addresses the urgent issue of immigration from multiple perspectives by fusing intense work by undocumented immigrants, former detainees, current detainees, DACAs (Delayed Action for Childhood arrivals), college students, grass roots activists, self- taught artists and professional artists. The exhibit includes paintings, sculptures, collages, glass arts, films, photography, and videos. The works range from heartfelt to playful, interactive to informative, and poetic to didactic.
At the opening, July 20, and the closing, August 17, we will have music, poetry, and stories, as well as immigrant rights leaders speaking about the essential contributions of immigrant workers and the oppressive conditions in the Tacoma’s North West Detention Center. Our purpose is to open up the conversation about immigration and to embrace the many ways in which immigrants are the essential fabric of our society.
In addition to visiting the gallery, we invite visitors to participate in various ways such as playing games, manipulating sculpture, responding to interactive posters, or browsing our reading section.
