Traversing Departures

@ Gallery 400

400 S Peoria St, Chicago, IL 60607

Opening Wednesday, June 20th, from 6PM - 8PM

Traversing Departures is a public conversation between artists Yvette Mayorga and Alexandria Eregbu on forms of processing personal transnational narratives of migration to the U.S. Sociologist Xóchitl Bada (UIC) joins Mayorga and Eregbu as a moderator. Bada’s research on Mexican American philanthropist innovators and Black and Brown intersectional relation development will serve as a backbone to examine Mayorga and Eregbu’s projects as a social byproduct of movement.

Traversing Departures is a conversation that digs into common ground between Black and Brown femmes, asking is it safe to assume an allyship or similarity. Through Mayorga, Eregbu, and Bada we are able to see the full scope of individuality, research, and methods of self-fashioning.
