The Chinese American Museum has collaborated with El Peublo De Los Angeles Historical Monument to create a new exhibition of work by 18 Los Angeles-based artists at the CAM in LA. The work presented in Deferred Dreams: Artists Respond to Immigration Reform references both contemporary and historical reforms to immigration policy in California.
The artists featured in the show comprise a diverse group of painters, graffiti artists, sculptures, and performance artists. Though coming from a broad range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds these artists manage to reflect on a subject that affects them all. They respond to the widely held notion that the impact of immigration reform polices is limited to the Latino community, and make testament to the common hardships of all kinds of immigrant communities in the city.
