SVA MA Curatorial Practice, The 8th Floor, The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation, and The Mexican Cultural Institute of New York are pleased to present this first Major Year-End Project of Spring 2019 curated by Andrea Valencia Aranda.

“Double Disappearance: A symposium about the Undocumented Memorial of 9/11” looks at the exclusion of undocumented immigrants from the National September 11 Memorial as a case study to understand the importance of memorial culture, representation, and the complexities of the identity of migrants. The symposium will bring together migration studies scholars and artists to open a new dialogue about September 11. The symposium frames 9/11 as a landmark event in the construction of negative narratives on immigration and the consequences of a double disappearance: one from the everyday social life and a second from the official narrative of history.
