Don’t miss traveling exhibit Between Two Worlds at the Richmond Museum of History, presenting and juxtaposing the crucial histories of refugees from Laos and multi-ethnic Lao American history through the representation of four homes. As they move physically and symbolically through each, visitors will be asked to contemplate ideas of “home” as seen through the eyes of people for whom the notion is precarious, and for those who have lived or are still living “between two worlds.” The exhibit highlights the ways in which the refugees from Laos migration exerted pressure on cultural norms, and how survival involved both radical loss and creative adaptation.
This project is supported by California Humanities through a Humanities for All Project Grant.
