Migration has always existed, and long before 1066, people have been making hazardous journeys and dangerous crossings. As part of ROOT1066 International Art Festival to mark the 950th anniversary of the battle of Hastings, Murmurations Gallery presents Another Crossing, an exhibition in which artists Giovanna Del Sarto and Bern O’Donoghue confront our sense of shared humanity and question the notion of ‘other’. Through installation, photographic display, visitor collaboration, workshop and talks. This thought provoking exhibition seeks to reconnect us to the human story within migration, asking how and why we can help those in distress.
