Notions of Home: Selections from the Collection

Notions of Home:
Selections from the Permanent Collection

This exhibition features works from OCMA’s permanent collection that evoke contradictory feelings of home. The concept of domesticity has long been a source of inspiration for diverse forms of art and for exploring social concerns and identity. As we spend more time at home due to the pandemic, the boundaries between public and private space blur and our mixed attitudes toward home continue to intensify. This timely show captures ambivalent perceptions of home that shift between familiarity and estrangement and between comfort and conflict.
