AboutBetween 13 May and 26 November 2017 the exhibition presented a total of 37 artworks across a variety of media, and demonstrated the complexity and continued relevance that diaspora as a lived in reality holds today, while challenging the prevalence of national pavilions within the Biennale structure.
