Artists Selected for SAQA Exhibition “Stories of Migration”

Stories of Migration


Housed in the new George Washington University Museum, The Textile Museum is hosting a juried exhibition in collaboration with SAQA, Stories of Migration: Contemporary Artists Interpret Diaspora.

Thirty-nine pieces of artwork were selected by Jurors Lee Talbot and Rebecca Stevens. This timely exhibition will showcase the wide range of talent of our SAQA members – selected pieces include art quilts, 3-D works, large installations and video.

In addition, the exhibition will feature social, cultural and historical commentary by faculty members of George Washington University’s acclaimed program in Diaspora Studies. Artists invited by the Textile Museum will also participate in this ground-breaking exhibition.

The exhibition opens April 16, 2016.
