“Notions of home”

September 14 – december 10, 2017
Opening reception: september 14
members preview & tour 5pm | Public Opening 6pm

Notions of Home speaks to the complex realities of what home means for each individual, within our city, and in America today. “Home” encompasses a sense of identity that could be formed by blood, tribe, race, sexual orientation, gender, religion, or statehood; a geographic environment; a physical structure; our planet, and so much more. As many in our city face a scarcity of affordable living, or a change in paperwork and policies affecting their ability to call a place home, we look to photography to do what it does best: engage, reveal, provoke, and elucidate various viewpoints on this topic.

Featured Notions of Home artists include:

Corey Arnold, Will Austin, Tim Barney, Zack Bent,  Erin Elyse Burns, Elinor Carruci, Adrain Chesser, Neil Chowdury, Annabel Clark, Elliott Erwitt, Joe Freeman, Paulo Gonzales, Cian Hayes, Daniel Hawkins, Thomas Holton, Eirik Johnson,
