CarryOn Homes, an artist collaborative founded by Shun Jie Yong, MFA ’18, Peng Wu, MFA ’13, Preston Drum, MFA ’16, Zoe Cinel, MFA ’18, and Aki Shibata, was commissioned by the Minneapolis Institute of Art (Mia) to create an art installation for their upcoming exhibition When Home Won't Let You Stay: Art and Migration.

Borrowing its title from Somali-British poet Warsan Shire, When Home Won’t Let You Stay: Art and Migration highlights the diverse artistic responses to migration, ranging from personal stories to poetic meditations in a range of mediums. The commissioned installation by CarryOn Homes, COH Living Room, is a shared space for local immigrant and refugee communities to access resources, connect, and have restful and healing conversations. The installation will feature handmade pillows made from articles of clothing linked to the artists’ (and audience’s) intimate and varied experiences of home.
