“Home: Imagining the Irrevocable,” engaged artists of various disciplines (visual, music, literary, etc.) in a creative and collaborative exploration around the concept of “home.” The exhibit theme drew inspiration from the James Baldwin quote, “Perhaps home is not a place, but simply an irrevocable condition (Giovanni’s Room,1956),” a similar show hosted by the Anat Egbi gallery in Los Angeles in 2019, and additional concepts presented in Toni Morrison’s works: “Home (2012),” and her 2006 exhibition/2018 documentary, “The Foreigner’s Home.” Through this theme, the exhibit sought to examine how “home” has, and continues to be defined by Black Americans amidst the historical and contemporary challenges of displacement, marginalization and otherness. The exhibition was located at Gonzaga University's Urban Arts Center in downtown Spokane, WA -- From February 4 - 26th, 2022.
