WHY: For the first exhibition in the Jackson Street Gallery this fall, Arts Instructor Jenifer Kent has collaborated with UHS alum Genevieve Hulley ’06 to curate HOME, an exhibition which asks us to reflect upon the ways we are each defined by histories of land, migration, and family. If we each exist in a particular place, how does that place serve to inform our identity, and how, in a time of shifting borders might we question and redefine the notion of home? We are lucky to feature the work of Rodney Ewing, Lisa Solomon, and Hannah Perrine Mode, three Bay Area artists who each work with ideas of home, land and identity. Rodney Ewing will be showing pieces from his SF Bus Kiosk project which tell the stories of immigrants and how they relate to home, Lisa Solomon’s mixed media pieces consider notions of history, family, and identity, Hannah Perrine Mode will be sending pieces as postcards from the Juneau Icefield Research Program (where she is a member of the faculty) investigating ideas around how we relate to land. We feel very fortunate to have these artists showing their work at UHS, and hope you will joins us for the opening reception and artist’s talk on September 14th at 5pm in the Jackson Street Gallery; refreshments will be served.
