The story of the artist as a migrant is not a new one. Creative minds from Gauguin to Nabokov to Weiwei fled the confining norms of their homeland in search of stimulus and freedom abroad, and in turn, engendered some of their most admired work. However, in the current political climate, migration is a polarising issue. Discussions around Brexit and the presidency of Donald Trump have raised the question: who is a migrant and how do they contribute to society? Artists have a unique ability to present honest revelations on the romance and realities of migration.

Between Two Strangers: Twelve Stories of Migrating Artists is a collection of stories and interviews from artists on the challenges of maintaining an artistic practice in another country.

Featuring Dana Olarescu & Bojana Jankovic, Ian Lynam, Xiaolu Guo, Emily Hartley-Skudder, Sarah Stein Lubrano, Saleh Addonia, Nina Mangalanayagam, Jim Russell, Noma Bar, Brenda Wong, Annette Mees, and Peter & Lizzie Mandeno.
