How does familial and cultural history get passed on? What are the unexplainable, ineffable legacies of trauma and how is this carried through generations? This exhibition brings together artists whose work touches 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.
Waiting Room will present a reinstallation of Yes, and the body has memory at the Law Warschaw Gallery at Macalester College from January 5 – January 26th, culminating with a catalog launch. Originally hosted at Gallery 71, the exhibition contained nudity that not all residents of the France 71 building were comfortable with. In conversation with the exhibition curator, Mara Duvra, and the artists, we determined to relocate the exhibition to the Law Warschaw Gallery for the duration of its run, reopening on January 5th through January 26th. Waiting Room will continue at Gallery 71 with the next exhibition opening in February 2019.
