Phillips Collection showcases refugee stories told through art

The exhibits are by artists from all over the world who share their experiences with displacement.

    The pain and trauma of the world's refugee crisis are on full display at a museum in Washington, DC.

    The artists include a deaf, mute Syrian boy who describes the bombing of his town using hand signals.

    The museum's chief executive, Dorothy Kosinski, spoke to Al Jazeera about how art is being used to highlight this pressing global issue.
