Stories Tell Of Loss, Each New Land Allows New Dreams

May 2018 – June 2019

With support from the Brooklyn Arts Council and the New York City Department of Recreation’s Art in the Parks, we are excited to present the site specific fence weaving by Mildred Beltré and Oasa DuVerney of Brooklyn Hi-Art! Machine.  Photo by Michael Piña.

Artists Statement

With our weaving we wanted to address multiple narratives around migration and immigration as well as address the the history of Brooklyn as a site of settler colonization.  The woven message Stories Tell Of Loss Each New Land Allows New Dreams acknowledges the Indigenous population that lived in Brooklyn and how that history exists alongside the story of early Brooklyn migration and the stories of the current immigrant populations in Brooklyn.
