The 2017 exhibit “Mygration” will be on view from November 3 – November 25, 2017 at Joyce Gordon Gallery in downtown Oakland.

Mygration explores various meanings and implications of migrating people or other living members of the planet moving from one place to another with the intention of resettling and seeking better lives, or better means of livelihood.

Featured artwork include both current and historical commentaries due to climate change, international movements spurred by political conditions, dire conditions, local migration due to gentrification, mass increases in living cost, or labor opportunities. Their stories record visual experiences and perspectives that make us laugh, bring us to tears: and yet allow us to pause at the thought of how migration have an impacts on us all.

Finalists are featured at Joyce Gordon Gallery and semifinalists willare featured in our online exhibition, along with the finalists.
