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.

Download the press release here.

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.

No appointment necessary, open for viewing Tuesday - Saturday 11am -6pm
