Blue Star Contemporary’s current exhibition with Sanctuary City Project asks you to share your story of immigration as a part of the artist collective’s ongoing community-based project.
Sanctuary City Project is a social practice project of artists Sergio De La Torre and Chris Treggiari that engages communities to generate conversations around the history and policies of immigration in the US. Artists De La Torre and Treggiari invite the San Antonio community to reflect on their ideas, personal experiences, and histories with migration with call and response and additional activations out in the community. The exhibition in Blue Star Contemporary’s Project Space gallery opens on November 6, 2020 and will run through May 9, 2020. It includes screen printed posters installed and for take away, a digital timeline representing qualitative and quantitative research surrounding the sanctuary ordinances and immigration issues, a video work compiling peaceful immigration protests since President Trump’s election.
Sanctuary City Project seeks publicly solicited responses to the following question: “When did you forget you were an immigrant?” To share your story, please call (210) 342-2667. Press 0 then # to leave a response.
