HOME—So Different, So Appealing features U.S. Latino and Latin American artists from the late 1950s to the present who focus on the simple universal idea of “home.” Spanning seven decades, these artists explore one of the most basic social concepts by which individuals, families, nations, and regions understand themselves in relation to others. In the process, their work also offers an alternative narrative of postwar and contemporary art. Organized in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, this exhibition comprises a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, installation, performance, photography, film, and video.
