The Displaced

I was impressed how many Canadians were taking immigrant families into their homes.  That influenced me to accept an offer by Critical Practices Project to do an exhibit in a live-in loft in New York City,  It was a symbolic gesture on my part, to show paintings, drawings and small installations of refugees, migrants, prisoners, and abused women and girls, among the pots and pans of a household environment. I entitled the show “The Displaced”. The wall and floor painting “The Griot Cloth” created a space for four speakers to tell their own experiences of being displaced through war, discrimination or family difficulties. 

Here is Nikky Draven on opening night.
