Monday, Dec. 9, 6 – 7:30 p.m at Wilton Library, Weir Farm Artist-in-Residence Exhibition/Reception for Natalie Camou. In her work, Natalie seeks to disrupt the politically useful binary of the ‘good immigrant’ versus the ‘bad immigrant.’ Through photography she explores the dimensions of the immigrant experience to show a complexity of networks, families, and individuals impossible to filter through values of ‘good’ and ‘bad.’
