Contemporary representations of Nigerian women in Italy result, as is often the case with black women, in the reproduction of stereotypical images such as those of refugees. The patronising view informing research of migrant  communities hinders the development of an open and engaging dialogue with them. In this article, we discuss the ways in which the participatory multimedia exhibition Iloi challenges dominant ways of representation through its  employment of a collage methodology. The exhibition was co-created by a collective formed by a group of Nigerian women based in Palermo, two international art professionals and three academic researchers based in the  Netherlands. Collage, a process of knitting together experiences, objects, history and futures, reflects the complexity of human interactions. Thus, this article proposes the use of a performative and interactive methodology geared  towards making migration research more inclusive and reflective.
