Overview

Home, a multi-media exhibition, creates conversations around concepts often tied to the sense of home—memory, comfort, loss, displacement, and reclamation. Sometimes described as a state of mind, home occupies both a physical and emotional space. Each artist examines how the concept of home can alternate based on an individual’s perception, simultaneously serving as a site of renewal or rejection, longing or resistance. Whether stemming from self-selected removal or forced exile, the featured artists grapple with the impact of displacement and utilize their work to provide a space of meditation on the experience.
