SHIFTING SANDS is a group exhibition showcasing the creative breadth of 20 artists from NYFA’s 2020 Immigrant Artist MentoringProgram. Each of these artists has crossed physical borders, leaving one part of the world for another – in doing so, holding space for various identities and shifting realities. From this common experience emerges unique perspectives on identity, belonging, home, memory, hope and resilience.
For twenty-six years, ChaShaMa has transformed unused space for 30,000 artists, hosted 4,000
public art events, provided 1,500 free art classes in underserved communities, and reached
audiences of nearly a million.
