MIF & Cultural Center to host exhibition for LA & Caribbean artists
Mar '08
The IDB's Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF) and Cultural Center invite artists from throughout the region to submit artwork that tells the story of migration's impact on individuals, communities and nations for its exhibit "Far from Home: The Migration Experience in Latin America and the Caribbean," to be held in Washington D.C. June 9-20, 2008.

The exhibit is open to all artists born in Latin America and the Caribbean, regardless of where they live. The deadline for submission of art portfolios is April 18, 2008.

"Migration has become an integral part of economic development both inside and outside the region." said Don Terry, the MIF's general manager. "The MIF has made great strides on the financial side of remittances; this exhibition is intended to show the human and community dimension."

"It seeks to challenge conventional wisdom by showing the less well known dimensions of migration - both as a rising trend between countries in the region and to new countries of destination, such as Spain and Japan."

The MIF, through its development projects with the private sector, has put remittances and human capital development in a more global and interconnected world economy in the spotlight.

"This exhibition on the migration experience of the region in the 21st century seeks to share the dreams and tears of the migrant experience in Latin America and the Caribbean," added Félix Ángel, director of the IDB Cultural Center.

Artists interested in participating in this exhibit should note the following guidelines:
