The Houston Climate Justice Museum & Cultural Center presents Climate Migrations: Displacement, Travel, Home, an exhibit exploring the intersection of climate breakdown and migration in both human and more-than-human worlds. Designed to bring together artists, scholars, activists, and communities, the exhibit hopes to make visible the cross-national, cross-racial, and cross-species alliances that make life possible in the midst of accelerating environmental change through art, storytelling, and public history.
As a site of dense historical and contemporary migration and exchange, this exhibit also explores displacement, travel, and the making of new homes withinHouston. The artwork, stories, and public history in “Climate Migrations” help us re-imagine Houston as a convergence zone with a tangled history; a confluence of colonization, land rights, war, water, ecological precarity, museums, state policy, and fossil capitalism.
The opening features work and stories by Mashal Awais, Zain Awais, Eddie Canales, Lina Dib, Valentina Jager, Naomi Kuo, Julia Barbosa Landois, Cin-Ty Lee, Matt Manalo, Reynier Leyva Novo, Materanya Ruchinagiza, Henry G.Sanchez, and Saúl Hernández Vargas, and will be a rotating and evolving space with additional artists and programming to come.
