Throughout history, artists have left their homelands, traveled to new places, and started their lives anew. This exhibition showcases painters, photographers, printmakers, jewelers, sculptors, and textile artists. Their art reflects their experiences and unfamiliar surroundings. The artists address the challenge of upheaval and the hopefulness of new beginnings. They cope with these experiences by forming connections with their new environment through artistic expression.

Between Worlds features work by artists who have made a new home in the United States; artists whose African or Indigenous ancestors were enslaved or pushed away from their homelands; and more recently, those who experienced the Great Migration from South to North or across the country within the United States. Through art and stories as diverse as the people themselves, this exhibition presents new perspectives on the migration experience.

Between Worlds is the third in a series of exhibitions created through a multi-year collaboration of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Mattatuck Museum, Waterbury, Connecticut; and the Munson Museum of Art, Utica, New York, made possible by the generous support of the Art Bridges Foundation.
