The latest exhibition at Berlin gallery Space_31 focuses on the immigrant experience. Named “Diaspora, Ma Homey,” the show aims to start a conversation about the Southeast Asian diaspora and immigrant identity through art, fashion, and music.
The exhibition is curated by Nhu Duong and Sung Tieu as part of their TROI OI project, which is described as a “platform to examine their cultural heritage as Vietnamese immigrants living in the West.”

The exhibition features a mix of multidisciplinary artists, including emerging designers ASAI and CFGNY, producer Soda Plains, and photographer Samuel Ibram, all of whom engage with different aspects of the immigrant experience — from the act of leaving your home country to the process of assimilation in the new one.
“Diaspora, Ma Homey” runs until November 30. Browse images of the show above and then head to Space_31 for more information.
