After being dislocated from its original venue due to adverse response from tenants in a loft building attached to the exhibit space, this group show curated by Mara Duvra is completing its run in the Law Warschaw Gallery in Macalester’s Janet Wallace Fine Arts Center.
The exhibition uses the work of Leah Edelman-Brier, Lorena Molina, Carla Alexandra Rodriguez and Rikki Wright to explore how familial and cultural history get passed on through generations. What unexplainable, ineffable legacies of trauma are transmitted? These artists touch on home and all its multifaceted meanings, home as in land, place of origin, as in the body, as the corporeal and spiritual connections to mothers, sisters, aunts.
Join curator Mara Duvra and artists Carla Alexandra Rodriguez and Leah Edelman-Brier for an evening to celebrate the exhibition’s successful conclusion and catalog, as well as discuss the exhibition and themes.
Yes, and the body has memory… remains on display at Macalester until January 26.
