The Culture of Rights/The Rights of Culture: Jenny Polak
January 19, 2009 - March 8, 2009
A juried solo show that provides a visual arts component to the IRW interdisciplinary seminar. Jenny Polak “designs and installs fictional architectural hiding and dwelling places for people without immigration papers. In alluding to illegal assistance of undocumented and stateless people, I draw on my life as a resident alien, my migratory family history, and current events.”
