We open our virtual doors to you on September 1, 2020 for the inaugural exhibition at Acogedor, “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.

Interested in exploring the shifting nature of home, Acogedor invited submissions from artists worldwide across mediums––artists who identify as BIPOC or from historically marginalized backgrounds were especially encouraged to apply. The exhibition is the first for Acogedor, which had previously only hosted intimate events, and it serves as a launching pad for more activities online––shifting from inviting people into her home (artist Nicole Rademacher) to bringing art and conversation to your homes via the internet.

All of the work in the exhibition has been created during quarantine (since March 16, 2020). Each artist examined their relationship to their abode as well as the social isolation that ensued with being confined to their residences. The lived experiences of 42 artists spanning 5 countries have been chosen to show and explore the diverse experiences that each of us is experiencing in this, certainly, bizarre new world.
