21c Museum Hotel Kansas City was honored to read the review of our opening exhibition, Refuge, by Sarah Rose Sharp. Our museum, open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, is currently featuring this exhibition, focused on immigration and refuge. Alice Gray Stites, Cheif Curator, said:
“Usually a show does start off from a handful of works in the collection,” Gray Stites told Hyperallergic. “In this case, it wasn’t a work of art. This came from a desire to explore this topic, and a feeling of responsibility. Steve and I started talking about it at least two years ago — we need to do something about the topic of immigration and refuge. Then, looking at the collection, there was a great deal of work addressing this, either directly or indirectly.”
