UCLA New Wight Biennial
Curated by: Farshid Bazmandegan and Rachel Hakimian Emenaker
The New Wight Biennial 2022: Between the Self and its True Home highlights multidisciplinary works from artists exploring ideas of exile, diaspora, and migration. Between the Self and its True Home features the work of 27 artists from across the globe, which encompass some of the many stories of the present-day challenges which the artists have experienced due to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, war, and persecution. It proposes that the work of these artists in between their current home and former home (whether ancestral or physical) has created a place for timely and meaningful work across places and borders.
