"Arriving Ashore" by Peng Wu and Jammo Xu

Peng Wu ’13, MFA, and Jammo Xu ’13, MFA, are an artist team that is one of five finalists for the biennial MCBA Prize, an international artist's book award that honors excellence in new work from across the sweeping spectrum of book art.

There were 158 submissions from 18 countries for the 2020 MCBA Prize. From this diverse group of artists, Juror Betty Bright selected 32 semi-finalists, five finalists, and one winner from among the finalists, which will be announced virtually in a live event on October 23. After the announcement, there will be an artist conversation between Bright and the newly-revealed winner.

Wu and Xu's book project, Arriving Ashore: a memorial for the lives lost in the forceful migrations, spans across handmade paper and lists the names of migrants who died in their attempt to enter Europe.
