Opening reception: Thursday, June 29 – 6-8PM
Baggage Claim is a show that assembles artworks reflecting ideas of transit and migration, and suggestions of home, either coming or going. Home can be identified as a connection or a severance, depending on a person’s status as local, immigrant, visitor, traveller, newcomer or old timer; home can represent safety or protectionism.
The works in this show traverse these connections to locale, residence, and translocation, and the navigation of spaces in-between: expanses that can be unknown, dangerous, mysterious, adventurous, lonely or exhilarating. Ultimately, one’s regard of home and place is always connected to a larger story.
