ImMigration Project, LA Printmaking Society

ImMigration Project is a collaborative printmaking exhibition and installation asking artists to respond to the complicated and layered themes around “Migration” as part of a unique visual exploration.  As a natural process, migration brings to mind compelling images of caribou herds, butterfly swarms and flocks of birds; annual rituals following the seasons, migrations that occur also as reactions to disasters from crisis, fear, hunger, political upheaval or war, with whole populations suddenly becoming refugees, endangered, homeless, and immigrant. The impact of change and transition on the environment, on culture, language and on history, is an eternal process that begins with the process of migration. Each artists’ triangular print is a uniquely personal response to these themes and ideas, interpretations and interactions which presented together as a group create a dynamic visual mosaic.

Each participating artist is asked to create a 15” right-angle triangular print. These triangles are pieced together, regardless of orientation, to create one large mosaic print. Prints are created using traditional printmaking techniques as the project is  exhibited in Printmaking Conferences and Galleries and is sponsored by the Los Angeles Printmaking Society.

The next iteration of the ImMigration Project will be exhibited in October 2019 at The Scuola Internazionale di Grafica, Venice, Italy.
