Minneapolis Institute of Art, ‘When Home Won’t Let You Stay: Art and Migration’

Minneapolis Institute of Art, ‘When Home Won’t Let You Stay: Art and Migration’ Site includes a virtual video tour, as Gabriel Ritter, Curator and Head of Contemporary Art, talks about works in and related to the exhibition. About the exhibition: “By choice or by force. With great success or great struggle. People move or are uprooted, for many reasons. The world is currently witness to the highest levels of movement on record; the United Nations estimates that one out of every seven people is an international or internal migrant or refugee. Borrowing its title from Somali-British poet Warsan Shire, ‘When Home Won’t Let You Stay’ highlights the diverse artistic responses to migration, ranging from personal stories to poetic meditations in a range of mediums.”
