Opening Reception- Feelings of Home: Folk Culture and Memory Exhibition
March 20 @ 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
History and expression are experienced through movement, textiles, clothing, and other modes of representation that intersect with day-to-day experience. Feelings of Home explores this idea, centering local dancers, textile artists, and game-makers, among others, who work to preserve collective memory and history, while also exploring the subsequent transformation of their practices by migratory and generational experiences. The exhibition features seven artists and collectives creating art forms embedded in the everyday lives of their communities, and explores the interpretation of tradition as it is transformed by experiences of migration, and by multiple generations born in and outside countries of origin.
