    Home Bodies

    Featuring Ivonne Acero, Lenka Clayton, Catherine Colangelo, Karina Etcheverry Roberto, Casey Arguelles Gregory, Las Hermanas Iglesias (a project-based collaboration of Lisa and Janelle Iglesias), Courtney Kessel, Hillerbrand + Magsamen, and Barry Stone.


    "Home Bodies" features artists whose practice and work are informed by and melded with family life. Through differing approaches the 11 artists explore our shared experiences as mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, siblings, and protectors. How does an artist find time for their practice while being a parent. Can being a parent be artistic practice? Some of the artists in Home Bodies show us how. Other works address how familial experiences stay with us all of our life, even in the studio: the absence and presence of family members, the effects of those who nurtured us, the roles we are assigned and take on in our families, infidelity, sisterhood, and more. The artists engage and come to terms with the aesthetics of the materials of the home, including textiles, the dinner table, and stuffed animals.
