Archeology of Loss

Join artist Marina Leybishkis on Saturday, July 10th for a coffee-talk on her solo exhibition Archeology of Loss ⁠at 2PM ET! ⁠RSVP by emailing us at info@baxterst.org.

Archeology of Loss—Leybishkis’s solo exhibition—takes the form of an immersive installation incorporating sculpture, video, and sound, and poses crucial questions around history, migration, and image-making. 

The works presented draw upon the artist’s research and work during both her 2020 residency at Baxter St and a 2018–19 Fulbright grant. Leybishkis traveled to Greece, visiting the Moria Reception, Kara Tepe, and Identification Centre on the island of Lesvos, at that time the largest refugee camp in Europe and home to thousands of migrants, many fleeing wars in Afghanistan, Syria, and Iraq.
