HOME, in partnership with PrintMaker Studio and Kasko Frame Works
The HOME Exhibition is a group show taking place at 560 Gallery. The exhibition includes work from local photographers, including Nicole Johnston (Squamish Nation) and Yuki Xu (Chinese Canadian), and others from further abroad including both Canadian and international artists. Housing, and the concept of home, is one of the most contentious issues of our time. When we think of home, we often subconsciously bridge its physical structure with its conceptual meanings. The house/home is a manufactured ideal, a representation of ontological security, and the site of habitual routines and complex social relations. It carries symbolic and sentimental meanings associated with self expression, vulnerability, and agency. However, the home is an equally elusive and politicized space. To consider the home, we must also reflect on its embodiments of dark colonial histories, the criminalization of housing, and the rapid commodification of real estate. HOME Exhibition coincides with the launch of BROAD Magazine’s launch of the HOME Edition in Spring, 2022.
560 Gallery is located at 560 Clark Drive, Vancouver, BC, Canada V5L 3H7 and is a creation of PrintMaker Studio and Kasko Frame Works.
