> DESCRIPTION

The word “HÔME” resonates on cultural, emotional, intellectual, religious, philosophical, political and spiritual levels—as a place, a space, a myth, a source of identity, a promised land, a state of being, a war zone, an impossibility, and/or an inalienable right.

This simple word is open to a wide variety of interpretations. HÔME can connote security, belonging, memory, and comfort, or arouse feelings of dread, alienation, and pain. HÔME informs and is informed by geography and history, identities and ideologies, imagined and lived experiences.

Artworks may explore what it means to create a HÔME or to be without HÔME, what happens when we leave HÔME and arrive in a new place, or how relationships with culture, history, emotion, intellect, religion, philosophy, politics, and spirituality affect the idea of HÔME.

 

Goal:
To illuminate and enrich our understanding of the concept of “HÔME” through artworks that critically explore the concept and that also allow us to see various interpretations of the concept from different cultural standpoints (i.e. Vietnamese American, Cambodian American, Mexican American, White American, generational, etc.)
