Addressing themes of homelessness, migration, and belonging, this group exhibition will convey the complexities of emplacement—the process of situating something or someone into a new place—through an exploration of displacement and its relationship to power and identity.
Transitory Emplacements features works from Diedrick Brackens, Nathaniel Donnett, and Nicole Miller.
Transitory Emplacements is organized by Sally Frater, the curator of modern and contemporary art at the Ulrich Museum of Art at Wichita State University, Kansas.
