In 2023, the Studios at MASS MoCA and The Berkshire Immigrant Center started the Iris Residency to support artists in Western or Central Massachusetts who are born outside the U.S., or identify as first or second generation American. The exhibition, MIGRITUDE (a word coined by Shailja Patel) showcases the work of the five selected Iris Residency fellows - Cima Khademi, Clemente Sajquiy, Marina Dominguez, Hanna Sobolieva, and Shailja Patel - and their different approaches to the continuous process of building connections to both, the old and the new place.

The exhibition MIGRITUDE is curated by the Iris Fellowship coordinators, Carolina Porras-Monroy and Luiza Folegatti.

*To learn more about the Iris Residency:

**MIGRITUDE (Kaya Press, 2010) is the bestselling book, based on the internationally touring one-woman show, of poet, activist and exhibiting artist Shailja Patel. The word MIGRITUDE captures the concepts of migrant attitudes and migrants with attitude. It represents a reclaiming of voice and power by migrants who speak for themselves.
