Last year, several artists trying to enter the US and the UK were denied visas that would have allowed them the opportunity to view their own artwork on display. The Extraordinary features artists who are working on attaining this visa in the US and some who already have it. Goals of the exhibition include exposing the process of gaining this visa and also creating an opportunity that the artists in the show can list on their application for the visa. Related public events include immigration law workshops, support group meetings for individuals interested in visas, and more.
The group exhibition will be on display from October 16th –– February 2020
An opening reception will take place on Wednesday, October 16th 2019 at The Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College.
Location: 2180 Third Ave, New York, NY
