Homeward Bound

12/14/18 – 01/27/19


Crosstown Arts, West Gallery, Crosstown Concourse
1350 Concourse Ave.
Memphis, TN 38104 United States

Group exhibition addressing the complex theme of home, featuring work from more than 50 artists in genres ranging from painting to sculpture, video to performance art.

A place of home has very different meanings to all of us. Sometimes it is a memory, a sense of place, a person, a dream, a certain chaos, a metaphorical anchor, a roof over our heads.

At 6:45 pm, artist Areej Itayem will be performing in a sculpted pair of shoes in a piece titled “Zaman, Al KabKab: An Indefinite Existence.”

“I had three chairs in my house; one for solitude, two for friendship, three for society.”
-Henry David Thoreau

“Home is a name, a word, it is a strong one; stronger than magician ever spoke, or spirit ever answered to, in the strongest conjuration.” -Charles Dickens

“Going home without my sorrow
Going home sometime tomorrow
Going home to where it’s better than before.
Going home without my burden
Going home behind the curtain
Going home without the costume that I wore.”
-Leonard Cohen.
