The sixth iteration of the Museum’s Concourse mural series will feature an installation by Houston-based artist Tiffany Chung, who is internationally known for her diverse conceptual work and research-driven process dealing with sociopolitical issues. Contending with issues of conflict, migration, urban progress, and transformation in relation to history and cultural memory, Chung’s practice endeavors to document and discuss the micro, hidden histories—the memory and experiences of ordinary people—that counterbalance the grand narratives produced by the state.
Her commissioned mural centers narratives of migration and movement, especially those found within Dallas, in recognition and celebration of these lived experiences. This multisensorial and immersive installation seeks to engage guests with poetic, sonic, and visual possibilities in sharing the stories that people carry with them.
