Photographers Selma Fernandez and Wing Young Huie focus on Minnesota’s rapidly shifting demographics in (re)locate: A Place to Call Home
. Working from documentary tradition and personal interactions with their subjects, Wing and Selma show the individuals behind statistics with their photos of recently-arrived immigrants, many of whom are political refugees. The exhibition also tells the immigrants’ stories in their own words.
In keeping with the community-building focus of The Third Place Gallery, the opening reception will include dialogue between Wing and Selma regarding their artistic processes and the Twin Cities’ changing communities. Audience feedback is welcome in our informal salon-style events. Light refreshments will be served.
Opening reception Saturday, July 21 from 7 - 9 p.m., followed by ping pong and general frivolity.
