A theme with alarming relevance—migration, immigration, and the forced displacement of people—has artists around the globe responding with innovation, creativity, force, and compassion. This exhibition, organized by the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, continues the critical discussion, and also includes three large-scale installations rarely experienced elsewhere. Mia is the first U.S. museum to present Ai Weiwei’s Safe Passage, with thousands of refugee life jackets circling the museum’s columns. The interdisciplinary arts collective Postcommodity presents Let Us Pray for the Water Between Us, a new work in which a chemical storage tank is transformed into a drum. And the Twin Cities collective CarryOn Homes installs an immersive experience for reflection and connection.
