In a piece commissioned for “More Real? Art in the Age of Truthiness,” Kianga Ford combines her project series The Story of This Place and You Are Here. Currently in residence at the MIA, Ford is creating a multi-part narrative that guides visitors on walking tours of sites in Minneapolis and St. Paul. The tours will reflect on the complex landscape of immigration in the region, which has become home to large numbers of Scandinavians, Hmong, and Somali, as well as other groups, over the past century. Ford’s narratives were developed from material gathered during interviews and oral history workshops that she conducted with area residents. Engaging a range of migration and immigration experiences, Ford’s new piece will “reflect on…the different experiences of a visit, which imagines a return; a pilgrimage, which marks a personal life milestone but is never imagined to be permanent; and a migration, which permanently re-orients.” A unique feature of her MIA project is an audio tour that maps a fictional geography within the galleries of the museum itself. As visitors walk through the collections of Asian, African, Near Eastern, and European art, they listen to a story that engages the museum in a way that is more poetic than interpretive. In this iteration of You Are Here, Ford combines fact, fiction, conjecture, and truth to connect the art preserved within the museum to the changing communities that surround it.
