How does art speak to the work of grassroots activists and human rights fact-finders? Artists Díaz-Lewis’ 34,000 Pillows installation materializes the human experience of harsh and outdated US immigration policies in a way that statistics alone cannot. Human Rights Watch Sr. Researcher Grace Meng will speak with binational artists Díaz-Lewis and Chicago activist Lulú Martinez as they consider current immigration policies and realities, and how their intersectional mediums approach change.
