Un | Fixed Homeland
Presented by Grace Aneiza Ali
Wednesday, August 24
ICI Curatorial Hub

401 Broadway, Suite 1620
FREE and open to the public

Curatorial Intensive alum Grace Aneiza Ali will speak about the development and curatorial thinking behind her latest exhibition, Un | Fixed Homeland, currently on view at Aljira Center for Contemporary Art in Newark, NJ (through September 23, 2016).

Un | Fixed Homeland brings together thirteen emerging and established Guyanese artists who, via photography and photography-based art, examine the complex relationship to “homeland.” These artists explore how a homeland can be both fixed and unfixed: a constantly shifting idea and memory, as well as a physical place, a psychic space. Ali developed her exhibition during the course of the Curatorial Intensive in Fall 2014.

Un | Fixed Homeland features artists: Kwesi Abbensetts, Khadija Benn, Frank Bowling, Sandra Brewster, Marlon Forrester, Erika DeFreitas, Roshini Kempadoo, Michael Lam, Donald Locke, Maya Mackrandilal, Karran Sahadeo, and Keisha Scarville, as well as ICI collaborator, Hew Locke (included in ICI’s exhibition EN MAS’).
