Curated by Dr.Devika Singh with Amy Tobin and Grace Storey
12 November 2019 – 2 February 2020
Desmond Lazaro, one of the participating artists, sojourned in Cambridge for three months to interview migrant families from Bangladesh, Chile, Hungary and the US. He took references from their family photographs and portraits of the people who define home to others. The copies of the photographs are evident of his prowess in miniature style of painting. The compelling paintings tell the story of a separation not only from the land but also from the people who belong to it.
