“The Warmth of Other Suns: Stories of Global Displacement” Exhibit Opening

June 22, 2019 at 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Exhibit runs through September 22, 2019.

Author Richard Wright first used the phrase “the warmth of other suns” to describe his experience of the mass exodus from the South that African Americans began during World War I. In this exhibit, the title offers a link between the Great Migration and migration across the globe today. Works from Spanish photographer Griselda San Martin, Bangladeshi filmmaker Yasmine Kabir, Chinese neo-realist painter Liu Xiaodong, and others tell modern stories of the complex decision to leave home in pursuit of a better life.
