‘You Are Here’, an exhibit inspired by migrants from all over the world, is closing this Friday, May 9th, and you should absolutely go see it. Six artists created an environment that together comments on the state of affairs regarding migration. Mexican director and sound artist Edgar Farfan composed soundscapes to accompany the murals, paintings, collages, photographs, and sculptures in the show. One of the pieces is an inverted map of the region south of the U.S.-Mexico border personified with a screaming cartoon by Sergio Coyote. The mediums are varied and there’s also an installation video combination. It’s a great show with lots of diverse material, and it ends Friday so make the trip to Bushwick before the show comes down.
