“Many people think immigration is an isolated issue, a uniquely American phenomenon whose complexity can be solved with a giant wall. We know this isn’t true. There are infinite reasons why individuals, families, and groups emigrate, but the most important is the search for well-being, inspired by the hope of a better future. Ours is a species in a permanent movement, in a continuous exodus…EXODUS is an artistic exploration hoping to illustrate the complexity of migration through the eyes of my own immigrant identity.   – Octavio Logo
