Through drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture and video works, Sink Without Trace offers alternative perspectives on a subject that is often only presented through the eyes of the media and politicians.
The exhibition is listed as one of Frieze magazine’s ‘Exhibitions to Look Forward to in 2019’ (https://frieze.com/article/exhibitions-look-forward-2019-view-americas)
The exhibition includes objects and materials collected from shipwrecked migrant boats in Sicily and works made by unaccompanied minors in transit camps in Calais. A rescued North African migrant boat will be on public display close to the gallery on Regent’s Canal, Kings Cross during Refugee Week (17- 23 June).
There will be a series of public events as part of the exhibition, including artists talks, a symposium, a book launch and a workshop. Registration available at: https://www.sinkwithouttrace.com/related-events
Proceeds from the exhibition will go to Alarm Phone, a telephone hotline for migrants in distress at sea. (https://alarmphone.org/en/about/)
Sink Without Trace is funded by Arts Council England and curated by Federica Mazzara (https://www.westminster.ac.uk/about-us/our-people/directory/mazzara-federica) and Maya Ramsay (www.mayaramsay.co.uk).
