Artist Michelle Angela Ortiz leads a conversation with two community members featured in her new video installation, Arrival and Belonging, which humanizes the struggles and challenges of finding a home.
Arrival and Belonging is a two-part project commissioned by the museum: a large-scale multiscreen video installation with light boxes and a series of events highlighting the experiences of community members throughout the city. Over an extended period of intimate conversations, Ortiz gathered the stories of four Philadelphians who represent a wide range of lived experiences as immigrants and migrants. In this talk, Ortiz talks with singer Fatu Gayflor and activist Jamaal Henderson as well as shares excerpts and images of this new work, currently on view in the exhibition New Grit: Art & Philly Now.
