Exhibition Runs: January 9 - February 27 ( Free Admission)
Foreign/Familiar explores displacement and belonging through the work of seven Bronx visual and media artists. Their works are influenced, inspired, respond to, or revolve around issues of voluntary and involuntary exile, immigration, diaspora, and statelessness. Curated collectively by the Bronx Council on the Arts staff, the exhibition was generated through an Open Call for Bronx-based artists, and offers alternative narratives to current public discourses on immigrant and refugee communities.

A preview of the pop up VR experience will be followed by a conversation between FRP creators and selected members of Bronx-based immigrant justice advocates. The group will discuss the history and scope of the project, their artwork/advocacy work, and the impact of using virtual reality technology for immigrant + undocumented communities.
