Relaying the most contagious acts of resistance Where Do We Migrate To? Curated by Niels Van Tomme, Director of Arts and Media at Provisions Learning Project in Washington, DC and organized with the Center for Art, Design and Visual Culture in Baltimore, Where Do We Migrate To? explores contemporary issues of migration as well as experiences of displacement and exile. Situating the contemporary individual in a world of advanced globalization, the artworks address how a multiplicity of migratory encounters demand an increasingly complex understanding of the human condition.
