Drawing inspiration from British-Somali poet Warsan Shire's , "When Home Won't Let You Stay: Migration through Contemporary Art" examines how the forces of migration touch us all, radically destabilizing ideas of home, place, transit, and belonging in the 21st century.

“When Home Won’t Let You Stay: Art and Migration” considers how contemporary artists are responding to the migration, immigration, and displacement of people today. The world is 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.

Through artworks made since 2000 by 20 artists from countries such as Colombia, Cuba, France, India, Iraq, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Palestine, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States, this exhibition highlights diverse artistic responses to migration. Ranging from personal accounts to poetic meditations, the artwork features a range of mediums, including sculpture, installation, painting, and video.

This exhibition is organized by the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston.
