Bodies in motion communicate, influence, engage and instruct. Migrating Gestures showcases the work of sixteen interdisciplinary artists to explore the ways in which gesture has the capacity to live on and transfer knowledge between body, form and media, which in turn influence and shape our culture and understanding. Inspired by choreographer and performer Maria Gillespie’s 2016 show Mapping the Migration of Gesture at INOVA, this comprehensive exhibition expands to present gestural motions in a range of media presenting a truly multimedia experience of corporeal exchange and the body’s layered awareness.

Professional exhibiting artists include Maria Gillespie, Nirmal Raja, Portia Cobb, Barry Paul Clark, Rosy Petri, Nykoli Koslow and Kierston Ghaznavi.  
Exhibiting UWM student artists include Brandon Buhr, David Collins, Alex Dougherty, Ava Ferrier, Zoe Glise, Jessica Lueck, Finn O’Connell, Emily Olson and Faith Rae.
