This juried exhibition investigates how home is perceived in a variety of contemporary contexts. Homelessness, routine eviction, migrant work, and the refugee crisis all affect our understanding of home. This exhibition seeks to explore the concept of home in light of these current international and domestic contexts. What does the concept of home mean for the individual and community? This investigation includes, but is not limited to, artistic inquiries of social and cultural identity, economic and political status, gender identity , and ethnic and/or religious heritage.
