Wall Songs, Freedom Portraits
Who are today’s migrants? What are their anthems?
Artist-driven organization New Orleans Airlift, artist-in-residence Jeremy Thal, and immigrant rights groups Familias Unidas en Accion and In Shadow are creatively partnering to present [Wall Songs] [Freedom Portraits] at Airlift’s celebrated Music Box Village, an interactive installation and performance platform comprised of artist-built musical houses. Inspired by the metaphor of a sonic village and the 20ft tall walls that surround it, [Wall Songs] [Freedom Portraits] will examine the humanitarian crisis at the border and in our own state. The resultant work will be a multimedia immersive journey that portrays the lives, experiences and dreams of immigrants newly calling Louisiana home and those forced to be here.
