It is with great excitement that we announce the opening of homeplace, a group exhibition of work by ten artists that rereads the concept of private domesticity as both theory and philosophy.

Curated by Kate Wong, the show takes its title from a 1996 essay by bell hooks in which the notion of 'homeplace' is understood as the making of a physical as well as a psychic community of resistance. Employing the concept of homeplace as a framework through which to consider the disruptive potentials of domesticity, this exhibition untethers the lexicon of the home from its traditionally passive and feminised position.

Artists featured: Larry Achiampong, Patty Chang, Shezad Dawood, Rhea Dillon, DeSe Escobar, Madelynn Green, Nadya Isabella, Athena Papadopoulos, Mohammed Sami, and Urara Tsuchiya.

The Opening Day for the exhibition is on Friday 7 May and it will run until 12 June (Tuesday - Saturday 11 to 6pm) at 56 Conduit Street, W1S 2YZ.

A portion of proceeds from all sales will be donated to Herbal Mutual Aid Network, a grassroots organisation providing free plant-based care for Black people seeking support due to the ongoing crisis of racial violence and injustice.
