In/Between: NYFA Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program Exhibition
An annual partnership between New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) and Live Arts, the exhibition features and supports participants of NYFA’s Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program. Curated by Yanira Castro, Martita Abril, and Zahra Banyameria, the name In/Between reflects on the multiplicity of immigrant artists’ experiences, identities, practices, and politics, while also speaking to the liminal experience of home/residence/community.
The mentoring program pairs immigrant artists with mentors who guide them to achieve specific career goals while providing them with broader access to the New York cultural world. It brings mentees together with mentors as well as other program participants to navigate their shared experiences and the challenges of being an immigrant artist. Artists and details for this year’s group show to be announced later this spring.
