DEFEND AND ADVANCE
Installation view of paintings by Anna Stump.
Defend and Advance is a temporary exhibit of 39 original artworks by 17 artists that celebrates the establishment of the
National Immigration Law Centerís permanent art collection. With broadly varied approaches and narratives, the artists in
this exhibition explore current conditions of immigration and migration, displacement and labor, and struggle against
societyís collective amnesia. The artists are from a diverse range of geographic, political, and social backgrounds. The
curation seeks to discover shared experiences that can be explored in conversation and used to promote intellectual and
emotional engagement with the subjects being presented
