In/Between 2020: TRANSFIGURE


In light of the inequitable response to Covid-19 and the upcoming US elections, there is a call not just to strengthen democratic principles but to undergo a transformation. There is a desire for radical change towards a further completion of the democratic experiment, towards more equitable participation. Immigrant artists are at the crux of these conversations. How can we radically reconsider questions of belonging, being and inhabiting? For this year’s In/Between exhibit, we are looking at metamorphosis as a process of constructing body and home from the resources we already carry within us.

In/Between 2020: TRANSFIGURE exhibit at the Live Arts Ford Foundation Gallery will take place August – September 2020 and will include a concurrent virtual installation.

New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) is a nonprofit service organization that empowers working artists and emerging arts organizations across all disciplines at critical stages in their creative lives and professional/organizational development. Through the Immigrant Artist Program (IAP), the New York Foundation for the Arts is building and serving a community of artists with diverse backgrounds who share the experience of immigration. We connect artists with services and resources to foster their creative careers, gain support and exposure for their work, and integrate into the cultural world of New York and beyond while upholding their distinct identities.
