PRESENT PERFECT CONTINUOUS
Although it sounds like a nightmare of a grammar lesson, this exhibition is the work of eight emerging migrant artists (who have possibly had the displeasure of learning the dreaded present perfect continuous upon their move). Paintings, sculptures, drawings, installations and collages (and a little nostalgia) provide a personal historical narrative of these artists; while their pasts did not begin on the streets of New York, they express how they'll navigate this strange, strange land in order to fit in.
