H1B

"H1B" is an art exhibition from curator Masum Momaya of the Smithsonian Indian American Heritage Project. The result of a national call for art submissions, H1B includes pieces in various media including film. The work explores the trajectories, technicalities and tumultuous emotions of immigrants living and working here on H1B as well as H4 visas. Each work is poignantly personal and, at the same time, speaks broadly to the experience of immigrants everywhere in the world who leave their homelands to work, build lives and pursue dreams. The works, and the statements and biographies that accompany them, humanize global patterns and remind us that immigration debates are ultimately about people.
