Ways of Being Here asks how contemporary art practice explores the implications of moving from a homeland to another country — of establishing oneself in relation to multiple places at once. It brings together the work of Abedar Kamgari, Rah, and Alize Zorlutuna, three multi-disciplinary artists who are actively engaged with their immigrant histories and presents. The work showcased in the exhibition considers the making of identity in, through, and against the places, cities, and nations in which we live.
