11 January - 15 March, 2006, at the University Gallery, University of Leeds
An exhibition of works by eleven artists about the movement of aesthetics and the aesthetics of movement: passage, encounter, change, interface, combination, departure, separation, relocation, displacement, loss, memory, revisiting, reconnecting, trauma and transformation. In varied ways and different media, each by means of their own singular artistic strategy, they explore the aesthetic dimension of migration histories. They demonstrate that artistic practice generates knowledge of the migratory at many levels: ideas, pain, people, art forms, language, memory. Three themes play through the work assembled here.
