The Unhomely

06.29.2017 - 08.18.2017

Denny Gallery is pleased to announce The Unhomely a group exhibition of Amir H. Fallah, Ann Shelton, Diedrick Brackens, Future Retrieval, Mie Olise Kjærgaard, and Paula Wilson. The exhibition will be on view from June 29th to August 18th, 2017.

The Unhomely will explore the experience of being an artist in a globalized art world as the borders begin to literally and figuratively close, through the lens of Homi Bhabha’s post-colonialist idea of the “unhomely” presented in his 1992 essay “The World and the Home.”  He writes that the word “captures something of the estranging sense of the relocation of the home and the world in an unhallowed place…. The home does not remain the domain of domestic life, nor does the world simply become its social or historical counterpart. The unhomely is the shock of recognition of the world-in-the-home, the home-in-the-world.” This idea is used to further refer to the lack of recognition that many here in the U.S. have of the new ideological goals of our home country, and how those politics have impeded on the boundaries of private and professional lives. The artists in the exhibition explore issues of the global circulation of culture and cultural producers, alongside of issues of alienation from the ideas of “home.”

The exhibition includes two artists who are represented by Denny Gallery, Katie Parker (b. 1980 Jonesboro, AR. Lives in Cincinnati, OH) and Guy Michael Davis (b. 1978 Bartlesville, OK. Lives in Cincinnati, OH) who together make up Future Retrieval. They currently have a solo exhibition at the Fuller Craft Museum, Brockton, MA. Amir H. Fallah (b. 1979 Tehran, Iran. Lives in Los Angeles, CA) has had solo exhibitions at  The Third Line, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and the Nerman Museum Of Art, Overland, KS in addition to numerous international group exhibitions including the 56th La Biennale Di Venezia, Venice, Italy and the 9th Sharjah Biennial, Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. Ann Shelton (b. 1967 Timaru, New Zealand) has shown extensively throughout New Zealand, recently including the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, Auckland, New Zealand. Shelton has also shown at Espai d’Art Contemporani de Castelló, Castelló, Spain, in Images Recalled, 3 Fotofestival, Mannheim–Ludwigshafen–Heidelberg, Germany, and at Govett- Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth, New Zealand. Diedrick Brackens (b. 1989 Mexia, TX. Lives in Los Angeles, CA) has had a solo at Steve Turner, Los Angeles, CA and has been included in group exhibitions at the Berkeley Art Museum, Berkeley, CA, and in the 3rd Ghetto Biennale, Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
