Home is something I carry with me

If you are in the Bay Area, please join me at 951 Shotwell in San Francisco on Sept 4th for the opening of the show, "Home is something I carry with me." This is a group show funded by an Alternative Exposure Grant from Southern Exposure. Curator Adrienne Skye Roberts has put together an incredible roster of artists and I am honored to be showing with them. For the show, I have installed 21 new pictures running from the entrance of the building up to the second floor. Hope to see you there!

Home is something I carry with me> is an alternative art exhibition and film screening featuring over forty local Bay Area artists whose work considers the elusive and highly contested notion of home. For one weekend, two homes in San Francisco’s Mission District will transform into exhibition spaces and the backyard of a third home will be used for an outdoor film screening. (See schedule below). By reinventing our homes as art venues and opening them to the public, Home is something I carry with me exercises the rights of renters to use private residences for what we deem public good; an action that can be considered in resistance to the current housing crisis and the lack of economic sustainability for artists. Individual rooms within the homes will act as galleries organizing the work around themes of shelter, migrations, domestic space and memory, mapping, borders, neighborhoods and identities.

Participating artists: Mara Baldwin, Taha Belal, Jesse Brown, Michael Campbell, Julie Cloutier, Pablo Cristi, Cindy DeLosa, Amy Wilson Faville, Jonathan Fischer, Molly Goldberg, Pablo Guardiola, Alvaro Guillen, Jason Hanasik, Amber Hasselbring, Malak Helmy, Amanda Herman, Nanci Ikejimba, Josef Jacques, Amy Keefer, Claire Kessler-Bradner, Lynn Marie Kirby and Lisa Robertson, Milena Korolczuk, Laurel Lee, Lauren Mardsen, Lynne McCabe, Klea McKenna, Ranu Mukherjee, Jeff Norman, Alexis Petty, Simon Pyle, Hilary Schwartz, Renetta Sitoy, Bayete Ross Smith, Lewis Watts, Mira M. White, Anna Whitehead, Megan Wilson and Carmen Winant.
