Migrations Exhibition by the International Artists Collective Shows How Seattle Artists Are Saying Global is Local

International Artists Collective, a group of six artists living in the Pacific Northwest, South America and Armenia, use technology to work together to produce the show Migrations, at the Artspace Mount Baker Art Lofts in February 2017. The opening will be streamed live by Hollow Earth Radio so that everyone can experience the event in real time.

Seattle, WA, January 09, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Topics related to immigration and emigration are politicized today, but as the Armenian artist Karen Alekyan says, "Migration is permanent." Migration is part of the human condition. Life is not static. Migration and exile is a constant force creating shifting landscapes of identity, inclusion and exclusion. Society views the migrant as stranger in its midst: a stranger that is either assimilated or feared. Who is the stranger? What is the stranger searching for or fleeing? Don Quixote shifts the perspective from settlement to explorer, whether exiled or migrating through the boundaries of historical situations or our rapidly changing global context. Art created for this project is on exhibition at the Artspace Mt. Baker Art Lofts Galleria in February 2017. Opening night live streamed by Hollow Earth Radio.

Don Quixote Migrations is a project of the International Artists Collective. IAC members are professional artists and writers, coming from traditional studio and educational backgrounds, who have joined together to provide a platform for global projects that promote artistic expression to further human understanding.
