This virtual video exhibition marks the launch of the "Hostile Terrain" exhibition opening later this spring at Gallery 51. With works by the Sanctuary City Project already displayed on campus, this is the next phase in this campus-wide project.
Curated by artist Shasha Dothan, "A Tourist in Your Own Home" incorporates the work of six artists, all immigrants to the United States, invited by Dothan to create video works about their experiences in 2020. The exhibition looks at each artist's struggle with the notion of home: Is your home the new country you live in? Or the country in which you were born? T
Shasha Dothan (b. 1987 Tel-Aviv) is a Brooklyn-based artist working with video, installation, poetry and sound.
