About this event

In concert with Young Arts The National Foundation for the Advancement of Artists and in celebration of the exhibition, Home: Reimagining Interiority (on view until December 19, 2022 at the Tisch Gallery, New York, NY), we are pleased to present an opening reception from 5pm-6pm, followed by a panel discussion featuring artists and curators from the exhibition as they interrogate the very concept of home as an interior space of refuge and repose. The exhibit features photographic and text-based work by 20 cross-generational and interdisciplinary artists as they draw the viewer in to show the intimate and personal impact of larger social and political events that we are only beginning to understand. In what significant ways do these Black visual narratives respond to the dynamic cultural, political, social, and economic and intimate changes that have forced us to (re)interrogate previous conceptions of Blackness and home? What happens to the very notion of home as a space of refuge and repose when the lines between public and private space become blurred?

This event is brought to you by the Center for Black Visual Culture at the Institute of African American Affairs, NYU, and the Department of Photography & Imaging, NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
