Join us on International Women’s Day as we unveil a new temporary exhibit created by the Immigrant Migrant Women’s Association of Halifax.
Mosaic: Identity and Community Connection, a Community Presents exhibit, celebrates and explores identity from immigrant and migrant women’s perspectives.
The project features 11 works of art by women from nine different countries of origin. The goal was to create an art exhibit that would enhance the participants’ identity, sense of place, belonging and community connection. Mosaic was led by mixed media artist Miro Davis and anthropologist Maria Jose Yax-Fraser.
On March 8, we will celebrate International Women’s Day and the opening of Mosaic with artist presentations from the women who created the project, performances and a participatory art piece!
The project is supported by the Halifax Regional Municipality; the Nova Scotia Government through the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage; Support4Culture, a designated lottery program of the Nova Scotia Provincial Lotteries and Casino Corporation; and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
