'I Love It When I'm Wrong: Yes, White People, Immigration Is About Skin Color'

When: Aug. 1-31 2019

In her gallery in Montpelier, Susan Calza has mounted a multimedia installation that addresses the hot-button topics of immigration and racism. It features sculptural works in homage to Alan Kurdi, the 3-year-old Syrian boy who drowned in the Mediterranean Sea in 2015 as his family attempted to reach Europe; the image of his body washed up on a beach became a heart-rending viral symbol of the refugee crisis. The installation also includes audio tracks of immigrant narratives, among them the voice of a 6-year-old separated from her father at the U.S./Mexico border, as well as photographs and objects.
