Root Division invites artists working in all media to submit work for ME in a(ME)rica, to be presented at Root Division in July 2023.

ME in a(ME)rica is a call to center migrant voices that have been pushed to the margins within the narrative of the United States of America. Artists are invited to reflect on the construction of culture, the places they inhabit, and how to reimagine belonging and exclusion in a critique of the so-called “American Dream.”

ME in a(ME)rica is an exploration of the cultural myths and truths of collective and individual migration journeys. The exhibition aims to deconstruct the oversimplified categories and labels imposed upon those who make such journeys, creating radical new narratives that center empowerment.

ME in a(ME)rica is curated by WEDAPEPO, a collective of conceptual, interdisciplinary, transnational artists, who seek a more inclusive definition of “America” and believe in art as a space for social change. Confirmed artists include shiloh burton, Irene Carvajal, Oscar López, Nivedita Madigubba, Michael Martínez, and Jusun Jessie Seo.
