home was an online exhibition (September 1 – October 3, 2020) bringing together artworks created during the COVID-19 worldwide lock-down (since March 13, 2020) by 42 artists residing in 5 countries. Reflecting on the concept of “home” during this new and bizarre time, the artists share their experiences of … well, home.
When hearing the word “home” we often think of the place where we reside. When the “Shelter-At-Home” orders came in throughout the country and world, many of us found ourselves adapting to a new way of living where we did pretty much everything (i.e. sleeping, working, eating, pooping, loving…) from a single place––for some, a single room. The home became a place of both respite and stress, leaving us with the necessity to find new ways to be at home.
As a curatorial framework for the online exhibition, the artworks were gathered into four areas: Little Gestures, Time, Connections, and The In-Between. These areas were less categories and more like “essences” and served as a means to further the exploration of the artists’ experiences and work. This exhibition was curated and organized by Nicole Rademacher.
Taking advantage of the format of the world (being virtual), there were weekly Conversations with artists, 8 Instagram Takeovers by artists, and 3 ancillary, artist-run events.
