This event has ended.

Curated by Thorsten Albertz and Jaishri Abichandani, "Artists in Exile" is a group exhibition of works by artists of South East Asian, Middle Eastern, or Indian descent that reside in New York City.

“Exile” has been defined in history as being away from one’s home of birth or origin. In Greek tragedies, to wander away from home meant being exposed without protection from familiar laws, friends and family, and was seen as a fate worse than death. The artists in this exhibition bridge their cultural heritage with their country of residence; they cross reference, reinterpret and integrate cultures to express the myriad of experiences brought about by diaspora. Artists in Exile includes works by Samira Abbassy, Jaishri Abichandani, Mariam Ghani, Pooneh Maghazehe, Sara Rahbar, The Shining Mantis (Ernest Concepion and Mike Estabrook), and Sonali Sridhar and Mouna Andraos.
