The Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology is proud to announce our next exhibit installation, opening February 20th, 2020, Transient Matter: Assemblages of Migration in the Mediterranean.
Transient Matter: Assemblages of Migration in the Mediterranean brings the realities, perils, and the humanity of migrations and border-crossings to the Haffenreffer Museum through an exhibition of things discarded by migrants who crossed the Aegean to reach Greece, artwork created by migrants in camps and detention centers once there, and photographs and videos produced by the curators…
This is a two-part event, beginning with the Curator’s Talk at 5:00 p.m. in Friedman Hall, followed by the Reception at 6:00 p.m. at the Haffenreffer Museum Gallery at Manning Hall. Both the Talk and Reception are open and free to the public, supported by generous donation to the Friends of the Haffenreffer Museum and the Decolonial Initiative at Brown University.
