Between Two Worlds: Untold Stories of Refugees from Laos

April 26 - July 28

New Americans Museum presents Between Two Worlds, an exhibition that juxtaposes the crucial stages of refugees from Laos and multi-ethnic Lao American history through the representation of four environments. As they move physically and symbolically through each, visitors will be asked to contemplate ideas of “home” as seen through the eyes of people for whom the notion is precarious, and for those who have lived or are still living “between two worlds.” The exhibit highlights the ways in which the refugees from Laos migration exerted pressure on cultural norms, and how survival involved both radical loss and creative adaptation.
