Foreign Born explores the unique perspectives of female immigrants from Asia, South America and Europe. Individually, each artist charted a unique path to citizenship, while collectively that path ultimately inspired a desire for artistic expression. By referencing birth, femininity, and cultural identity, their unique perspectives form a singular message around the significance of immigration and the power of the female viewpoint.
Aligned with Mo’Print, a celebration of printmaking created “to inspire, educate, and promote awareness throughout Colorado” (Mo’Print Home Page, 2020), this exhibition predominantly features printmaking in the form of lithographs, monoprints, and etchings, but also includes drawings and paintings for a diverse range of represented media.
It is within the creation of ‘prints’ that we observe intrinsic personal narratives. From artists that directly reference their home country, artists depicting figures of another time and location, or artists that abstractly depict their connection to a new environment, Foreign Born delivers a diverse collection of work from artists creating personal objects in a once unfamiliar locale: the United States of America.
