When Home Won’t Let You Stay
Oct 23, 2019 – Jan 26, 2020
ICA Boston
Boston, USA

ICA Boston International artists respond to the migration, immigration, and displacement of peoples today, in works ranging from personal accounts to poetic meditations.

When Home Won’t Let You Stay: Migration through Contemporary Art considers how contemporary artists are responding to the migration, immigration, and displacement of peoples today. We are currently witnessing the highest levels of movement on record – the United Nations estimates that one out of every seven people in the world is an international or internal migrant who moves by choice or by force, with great success or great struggle. When Home Won’t Let You Stay borrows its title from a poem by Warsan Shire, a Somali-British poet who gives voice to the experiences of refugees.

Artists in the exhibition include Kader Attia, Tania Bruguera, Mona Hatoum, Isaac Julien, Hayv Kahraman, Reena Saini Kallat, Richard Mosse, Carlos Motta, Yinka Shonibare, Xaviera Simmons, and Do-Ho Suh, among others.
