The Value of Sanctuary: Building a House Without Walls

The Value of Sanctuary: Building a House Without Walls

Description

WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE? This is the question posed in the first billboard of this public art project. Set against the project of the border fence, the piece asks the viewer to place themselves in the position migrant. It also asks us to consider where we are going together as a nation, and where divisive political language about immigration is leading us. Produced by For Freedoms and Magnum Foundation, this installation is part of The Value of Sanctuary: Building a House Without Walls, on view through June 30 inside the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. The exhibition explores how personhood and community cohesion speak to and are formed by notions of dignity, inclusion and exclusion.
