INFORMATION AND ELIGIBILITY

Domesticity is a primarily household act, an activity and chore with devotion to family and home life. One in which we do with pleasure to sustain life with the personal characteristics that makes it our own. The building of the family unit, the organization of personal possessions, the nourishment provided from the meals we prepare, and the art of creating a space of comfortable respite is a great necessity of the human condition, of survival. Photographs using domestic subject matter, images of people and places we call home, of family, of shelter, are what make up the images in this exhibition, encompassing a range of approaches from the traditional codes of domesticity to alternative modes of home making.
