159 Sutton Gallery, Providence, RI
An one-day show as part of my Curatorial Practicum course.
Spatial arrangement and typography design.
To look through the window and recognize you are actually inside, looking out. A disorientation and reorientation. What can be imagined on the other side from the inside? From the margins of the private to the divulged; from the pretend to the factual; and the functional to the useless, home is evoked delicately, almost mythically, through transformation into the familiar.
Organized by a group of seven artists and designers, Almost Home considers the temporarily domestic, bringing together a diverse body of work that is rooted in connections to personal histories. Considering 159 Sutton’s distinct connection to place, the works that make up Almost Home examine a specific moment and sense of self that is undeniably tied to who we are, where we have been and what is constantly shifting. Mined from intimate and often private moments in the worlds we call home, the works express a marked link to each other’s past.
Almost Home is organized by Camille Chew (US), Bella Jiang (China), Yiran Mu (China), Daudi Nabaasa (South Africa-England), Susana Oliveros (Colombia), Will Simons (US), McKinzie Trotta (US).
