This virtual video exhibition marks the launch of the "Hostile Terrain" exhibition opening later this spring at Gallery 51. With works by the Sanctuary City Project already displayed on campus, this is the next phase in this campus-wide project.  

Curated by artist Shasha Dothan, "A Tourist in Your Own Home" incorporates the work of six artists, all immigrants to the United States, invited by Dothan to create video works about their experiences in 2020. The exhibition looks at each artist's struggle with the notion of home: Is your home the new country you live in? Or the country in which you were born? T

Shasha Dothan (b. 1987 Tel-Aviv) is a Brooklyn-based artist working with video, installation, poetry and sound.

We would like to thank everybody for their generous support during these tough times for our family. We greatly appreciate all of the donations, prayers, meals, and support that has been sent our way. We feel so blessed to be part of such an amazing community and we honestly couldn't have made it through this past week without all your help. 
To the North Adams Fire Department, North Adams Police Department, Northern Berkshire EMS, North Adams DPW, the North Adams Animal Control Officer, and the North Adams Water Department, thank you for your quick responses to our house, saving our dogs, and making sure everyone was OK. 
Finally, thank you to Cutting Edge Painting for dropping everything and coming to board up and secure our house and to Thrifty Bundle for immediately cleaning clothes for us to wear.
As we continue to move forward, we can't help but to reflect back to how lucky we are to be able to reside in a community that is so willing to help people in need. We are forever grateful and will never forget everything that the community did for us.  We Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
