Moving Homeward – Fall 2021

Moving Homeward

CHECK BACK Wed. Nov. 10 to 17 at

Moving Homeward explores the use of the personal and familial archive as a tool for auto-ethnographic investigation and speculative reconstruction of home, family, and affections. In the context of migration, displacement, and loss, how can artists research, deconstruct, reconstruct and expand archives to work through grief, uprootedness, assimilation, and intergenerational trauma?

Curated by PD Directors Sylvia Nowak and Ana Luisa Bernardez.
