Asian American Stories
AS YOU WILL BE
A three-person show with Amy Ritter, Courtney Garvin, in Foreman Gallery, Anderson Center for the Arts, New York
Xyza Cruz Bacani’s Im Migrant project focuses on the Bengali community in New York and their journey toward achieving the American dream. In her photographs, she documented the lives of various Bengali families as they navigated their lives in New York. Her photographs are as intimate as they are exploratory, interspersed with handmade textiles and traditional Bengali wedding garments. Im Migrant captures the very many ways in which “American-ness” might be defined and redefined by the immigrant experience.
