Encore Learning has secured free passes for this exhibit, as well as the permanent collection. Free passes will be distributed on the day of the event. If you are already a member of the Phillips Collection with your own free exhibit pass, you still need to register as the tour is limited to 20 people.

After brief orientation with an exhibit educator, this will be a self-guided tour. 

The Warmth of Other Suns: Stories of Global Displacement presents 75 historical and contemporary artists—from the United States, as well as Algeria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Brazil, Egypt, Ghana, Iraq, Lebanon, Mexico, Morocco, Syria, Turkey, UK, Vietnam, and more—whose work poses urgent questions around the experiences and perceptions of migration and the current global refugee crisis.

Through installations, videos, paintings, and documentary images, The Warmth of Other Suns explores both real and imaginary geographies, reconstructing personal and collective tales of migration.

Location: The Phillips Collection, 1600 21st St NW, Washington, DC 20009
