“Real People. Real Lives. Women Immigrants of New York” is a unique nonprofit-artist partnership between New Women New Yorkers and Dru Blumensheid aka BUMESI.
The exhibition features art and fashion photographs of 16 young immigrant women in iconic NYC spots and neighborhoods, together with audio recordings of their stories and video montages. It shows a nuanced and multi-layered picture of the immigrant women who make NYC their home, of the barriers and isolation they experience, and of the hopes, dreams, and talents they bring with them.
