For most immigrants home is a physical and symbolic space that is often left behind in their individual and sometimes collective search for a better life. Within this context a group of artists and designers were invited by exhibition curator Dominique Denis to explore the complexity of the immigrant experience.

Visitors enter the exhibition through a space reminiscent of the traditional corner store or bodega where the transactional nature of these places is reimagined. Instead of common goods and knickknacks fragments of the immigrant’s journey are on display. To many these storefronts represent a first step into another culture often shaping the narratives associated with immigrant communities. The journey continues through the “back store” where selected artists and designers explore their own personal narratives through the creation of individual works of art and design conceptualized around themes of nostalgia identity transformation and belonging.

Storefront Identity – Fragmented Narratives introduces viewers to a world constantly in flux between past and present nostalgia and disenchantment and foreign and American identities. The exhibition invites visitors to travel in and out of different realities exploring the richness and diversity of the immigrant experience while reflecting on a multi-layered understanding of each artist’s singular journey.
