Initiated in 2019 by artist Yanira Castro as part of her Live Feed residency at New York Live Arts, In/Between is an annual immigrant artist group exhibition created by curators Yanira Castro, Martita Abril and Poppy DeltaDawn. It is developed in partnership with New York Live Arts and New York Foundation for the Art’s Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program. The purpose of In/Between is to support the work of immigrant artists from the NYFA program by exhibiting their work and sharing it with the public, thereby increasing visibility and conversation around the work of immigrant artists. The name In/Between reflects on the multiplicity of immigrant artists’ experiences, identities, practices, and politics, while also speaking to what they have in common: the experience of displacement and the work of communicating, finding, and forming community.
