H O M E
HOME – the exhibition – brings together a diverse group of emerging and established visual artists, each using their respective media to explore notions of re-location, rebuilding, reinvention, perception, inspiration and memory. The theme lends itself, particularly, to the voices of New York transplants, who largely define this city and whose daily realities balance on the unification of worlds – neatly fitting one within, under, over or alongside the other. It is a path of unbroken transformation equally familiar to many native-born New Yorkers who, perhaps more than any other urban dwellers, know the dance of uprooting, renewing and recreating a sense of home, even within our own backyards.
Whether we identify home as an internal nexus, a physical structure, or a state of consciousness, how we receive the world is demarcated by those images and impressions - real and imagined - with which we associate it. This exhibition encourages artists to harness those visions and analyses using any varieties of personal examination and creative process. The exhibition, in its entirety, is a celebration of the hundreds who will soon inhabit this glorious structure – each to engage hope and memory for the purpose of reinventing home. As well, it is a tribute to the rich archives and ethnicity of Sugar Hill, and creative proof of the omnipresent historical force in each of our lives.
The H O M E Exhibition is part of "If You Build It" - a site-specific project presented by No Longer Empty in partnership with Broadway Housing Communities at the home of the future Sugar Hill Apartments and Children's Museum
