The reference to the community in Michele O’Marah’s solo exhibition in CAF's main gallery, Michele O'Marah:Video Portraits, provides a bridge to a public exhibition component co-curated by the artist and Miki Garcia, Executive Director. Reprising two of CAF’s most significant exhibitions, Home Show (1988) and Home Show2 (1996), the two invited 10 Los Angeles-based artists to reconsider the societal and cultural notion of “home,” by creating site-specific installations in residences throughout Santa Barbara. Artists include: Piero Golia, Evan Holloway, Bettina Hubby, Florian Morlat, Kori Newkirk, Jennifer Rochlin, Ry Rocklen, Kirsten Stoltmann, Stephanie Taylor, and Jennifer West. The homes will be open to the public on weekends throughout the run of the exhibition. Visitors to CAF will be given a map and instructions for the tour.
Exhibition Hours: Home Show, Revisited: Friday - Saturday: 11 am - 5 pm, Sunday: noon - 5 pm; Jennifer West's film will be on view until 9 pm
