Where is home? And what does it look like for immigrants, indigenous groups, and people of color? BRN​ ​GRL​ ​SPK​ (Brown​ ​Girl​ ​Speak) presents This​ ​Is​ ​My​ ​Home​ ​(Too)​, an exhibit by women and femme artists of color. Their work examines our country’s complicated history with colonialism, slavery, and immigration — asking what and where is home, who has historically had access to one, and how does that shape one’s identity today?

The exhibit will run from October 9th through October 29th, 2017 at Casa Mezcal. There will be an opening reception on Monday,​ ​October​ ​9th​ ​at​ ​7​ ​PM​. The reception will feature drink specials, special performances, music by DJ Tara, and of course, opportunities to meet the artists and see their work.

On October 9, as many across the country celebrate Columbus Day, This​ ​Is​ ​My​ ​Home​ ​(Too) will celebrate the work of those with roots in America long before Christopher Columbus set foot, and the work of those who still feel the effects of colonialism today.

Proceeds from the opening night will benefit Families For Freedom, a New York based human rights organization by and for families facing and fighting deportation.
