“The project ‘Migratory Adaptations’ brings together artists from various countries that have
migrated to foreign land for varied reasons and are currently living and practicing art. Each
artist is free to discuss this issue in their own right and can examine the manner in which this
migration has affected and influenced them as an artist, educator and person.” The migratory
Adaptations Portfolio will be on view at Columbia College during the Southern Graphics
Conference March 24-29, 2009. Portfolio Participants include: • The list of invited artists:
May Hariri Aboutaam | Justin Diggle | Matt Egan | Ina Kaur | Shaurya Kumar | Jimin Lee |
