36. The Ones Who Leave... the Ones Who Are Left: Guyanese Migration Story

  • Grace Aneiza Ali (author)
Grace Aneiza Ali’s ‘The Ones Who Leave… the Ones Who Are Left: Guyanese Migration Story’ offers a personal reflection on artists’ experiences in Guyana. These particular experiences reveal universal tensions; they unveil the act of migration as a constant site of engagement and angst and explore what it means to be an immigrant in our twenty-first century world. Through three distinct approaches – conceptual, portraiture, and documentary – four Guyanese artists unpack what drives one from their homeland as well as what keeps one emotionally and physically tethered to it.
