Laura Drey

Unsettled Space

Drey’s work is about a state of migration—about movement, location, and identity. Through the support of The Idea Fund, Drey will travel to the U.S.-Mexico border with her mother and daughters to create a vignette of short stories and poetry that reveal cross-generational ways of belonging in the world. The work speaks to the complexities of migration, focusing on the nuances of personal and cultural identities as they intersect with themes of geography and government, labor and movement, economics and culture.
