the meaning wavers


Women and Their Work

Austin, TX



Betelhem Makonnen and Stephanie Concepcion Ramirez’s artistic research converges in the exhibition, the meaning wavers, which explores immigration, transnational identity and the impact of silence on our perception of history. Makonnen reconfigures images, accounts, and official documents from her own experiences to shift perspectives on how life stories are told and understood. Ramirez examines the gaps in her Salvadoran-American family and cultural history to create artworks that disrupt existing narratives of Central American migrants. Both artists use photo, video, and installation to create an exhibition tracing two journeys toward new perspectives on the untold. Curated by Rachel Stuckey, Gallery Director at Women & Their Work.
