September 1 – December 15, 2017
Opening reception: Friday, September 8, 6-8pm

Migration can seem like a single, bold act – but the process is actually a series of steps that includes correspondences, forms and often a whole lot of waiting – these individual tasks can be their own bureaucracies, each shrouded in mystery and inconsistency, despite the millions of people throughout the world who navigate them.

Hurry Up and Wait encounters the tensions between policy and humanity – the range of emotions, wonder, assumptions and discoveries that make migration much more than simply a political issue.
