Firoz Mahmud

Project Title: Migrational influx: (Promised Land project 21/21)

Project Description: Firoz Mahmud delves into the histories of ‘Ship Jumpers’ or “Tarjan Visas,” refugees from Bengal and South Asia who traverse high-risk geopolitical borders, many of whom settled as immigrants throughout Jamaica. As part of the Jamaica-based artist’s long-term practice, the project Migrational Influx: Promised Land will interview community members to create a series of multi-medium works celebrating Bengali legacies, traditions, and subcultures.

How to Participate: More information coming soon!
