Franca Marini's Transnational Migration and Immigration Exhibit

Feb 12, 2018 281

Italian artist Franca Marini exhibits her work titled Transnational Migration and Immigration at Kean University's Human Rights Institute from Feb. 1, 2018 to June 20, 2018.  This specific work was inspired by the refugee crisis in Italy. It challenges attendees to rethink how they judge and accept others by symbolically showing both the outer and inner journey of refugees through the use of strategically placed cloths.

Marini was born in Siena, Italy and has studied all throughout Europe to develop her artistic style. Eventually she came to the United States in the late 1980s to further her studies. She has since been creating site-specific installations and videos on metropolitan and human rights issues since 2005. Marini's work is featured in Italy, Costa Rica and the United States. She is currently a painting instructor at the Siena Art Institute for the State University of New York Siena Program of Buffalo State College in Italy.
