We Are All Mountaineers is a new body of work by Los Angeles based artist Bovey Lee comprised of intricately hand cut Chinese rice paper. The exhibition title references #WeAreAllImmigrants and it reflects upon the uphill battle facing immigrants under the current administration’s recent policy shifts. The works in the exhibition explore facets of migration: diaspora, lineage, displacement and the rebuilding of home, and familial separation. Drawing on immigrants’ personal experiences, the show affirms our shared desire for a sense of community, societal acceptance, and belonging.
