About This Event

"Home: Imagining the Irrevocable”, an exhibit featuring the works of local black artists in eastern WA. Guest curators: Olivia Evans and Tracy Poindexter-Canton.

This exhibit will engage artists of various disciplines (visual, music, literary, etc.) in a creative and collaborative exploration around the concept of “home.” The exhibit theme draws inspiration from the James Baldwin quote, “Perhaps home is not a place, but simply an irrevocable condition (Giovanni’s Room,1956).” Through this theme, the exhibit seeks to examine how “home” has, and continues to be defined by Black Americans amidst the historical and contemporary challenges of displacement, marginalization and otherness.

Dates: February 4-26
Opening Reception: February 4
