WASHINGTON. Amarist “Welcome?” february 07 — march 01, 2020. A&A at Hillyer Contemporary Art Center.

“Welcome?” is a visual installation raising awareness on borders and refugees.

In a time when we are witnessing a rise in populism and an increase in the closure of borders, the Welcome? exhibition seeks to spark a debate about the meaning of border walls in our world, raising social awareness on the exclusionary attitude towards migrants and refugees in a society that expresses deep contradictions between globalization and cultural clashes. Amarist Studio challenges us to question the rhetoric and policies that seek to divide us. Inspiring us to think again about our own moral compass and our own responsibility as global citizens.
