Painting BFA Faculty Lauren Frances Adams is included in this group exhibition at the historic Old Stone House in Brooklyn, NY.
Home Front brings together six artists whose work explores public and private acts of strength and resistance by women in times of social or political upheaval—and who are inspired by their own family and community histories as well as craft and other work traditionally associated with the home. A prevailing theme in this work is the idea of home itself, and, by extension, preserving associated cultural and familial traditions as a political act in places where one is made to feel unwelcome or invisible due to race, class, or immigration status, especially during times of transition or loss. At such times the ability to create “homeplace,” or a “space of care and nurturance” as well as self-affirmation (in the words of bell hooks), cannot be taken for granted. The artists in Home Front, the idea of home as more than a place of refuge or preservation. Home is an arena through which women can contribute to or even inhibit social progress.
