Home Is an Intimate Space: Amalia Mesa-Bains & “Transparent Migrations”

Transparent Migrations embodies the idea of “home” through the use of her personal armoire and the most intimate detail: the mantilla, or veil, that she wore to her
wedding 51 years ago. I talked with Mesa-Bains about the installation.
