Making Migration Visible: MECA Spearheads Statewide Conversation

Discusses the conception of the project as a way to "respond to the international human migration crisis." Describes the contributions of co-curators Erin Hutton (ICA Director of Exhibitions and Special Projects), Julie Poitras Santos (artist, writer, and MECA MFA professor), and Catherine Besteman (Colby professor of anthropology) and their shared vision for the show as a way to humanize and normalize the concept of migrants.
