Home As Situation // online exhibition
Online Resource Presented by Bolivar Art Gallery - UK School of Art
Many artists working today are addressing notions of home in unexpected ways, particularly challenging traditional definitions of home and proposing new approaches to understanding its complexity and fluidity. This exhibition seeks to examine where ideas of home intersect with themes of cultural identity/ies, colonization, access, refuge, politics of space, labor, community infrastructures, archiving/documenting presence, social (im)permanence, historicizing domestic spaces, diaspora, and many others. While this exhibition was conceived in 2019, our current era of stay at home orders, political unrest, and protests against racial injustice adds new layers to our collective experience of home as a varied situation.
