EXHIBIT: "Dark Water"
This exhibit features a series of works, including large scale embroideries and photographs, created by Jakkai Siributr, an IU alumnus and artist. Siributr explores the lives of migrant workers from Myanmar working in Thailand. Many of them escape religious or ethnic persecution in their own country hoping for a better life in Thailand but often find themselves victims of human trafficking as well as discrimination. Due to the lack of knowledge about regional history, and strong nationalist sentiments in Thailand, the migrant workers have to deal with prejudice on a regular basis from their Thai counterparts. And many of them will try to adapt to its new surroundings and culture to make life easier. The exhibit is sponsored by IU's School of Education. The exhibit will close 10/22/2017.
