MAMB AAI LAB 2020
MY STORY. MANY STORIES. This virtual exhibition is the culminating collective work of Laboratorio en las Fronteras, a project of the 2020 American Arts Incubator in Colombia. Due to COVID-19, we worked together virtually for four weeks, exploring migration and identity in the context of the Colombia/Venezuela border crisis. The participating artists centered their work around four themes: Moving/Stillness, Fragments, Reconfiguration of Identity, and Refuge. Think of each project here as a work-in-progress, designed specifically for this virtual space, and also existing in the world as the creative expression of an independent artist attempting to survive the pandemic. In the Lab, the barriers we faced, and the boundaries we crossed, became part of work. The stories embedded in these virtual galleries reflect the powerful lived experiences of extraordinary intergenerational artists at this unique moment in time.
