ACOMPI and NARS Foundation are pleased to present Transient Grounds, an exhibition that houses the histories embedded and preserved by immigrant, first-generation, and borderland artists whose work counters the gradual forces of cultural erosion. Sited within architectural and emotional fragments of a former home in Governors Island’s Nolan Park, the works unravel experiences and psychologies of hybridity, double-consciousness, memory, and belonging. They reclaim identities against the historic and persisting realities of colonialism, militance, and environmental crises of the Island and the United States at large.


Founded by Constanza Valenzuela and Jack Radley, ACOMPI is a global curatorial project based in New York City. ACOMPI derives from the Spanish word “acompañado,” meaning “in company”, highlighting community, interdisciplinary practice, and collaboration. ACOMPI serves as a youth-oriented, community-ingrained platform to highlight and expand the intersection of independent curatorial practice and site-specific public engagement.
