SOME PLACE LIKE HOME
Curator Yeu Q Nguyen Presented by Avenue 50 Studio in partnership with the Arroyo Arts Collective
We live in a world where nearly 1 person is forcibly displaced every two-seconds. According to the UN Refugee Agency, 68.5 million people around the world have been forced from their home as a result of conflict or persecution, and 143 million people may soon become climate migrants. In wealthier urban areas, gentrification, increasing debt, and lack of housing affordability fuel the rate of homelessness. 50,000 people are experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles alone, and a typical American moves over 11 times in their lifetime for social economic reasons. Some Place Like Home invites artists to submit work inspired and related to the themes of home and displacement. We are particularly interested in narrative works reflecting current or historical events.
