Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall’s installation considers the current plight of American immigration, by revisiting the paths that Blacks and early twentieth century Bengali sailors took to the United States, through the holds of slave ships and steamship boiler rooms. “The New Colossus”—the sonnet by Emma Lazarus engraved on the Statue of Liberty base—echoes through the installation: translated into Yoruba and Bengali, and set to traditional music by the artists’ collaborators Moses Mabayoje and Monjula Datta.
