Friday, Loni Johnson, and VantaBlack invite you to come home: a place of comfort, of safety, of raw intimacy, where one can be right or wrong and called out on it while never being put out. As you enter through the doorway, you’ll be transported to a place of belonging; where deep roots hold fast to the memories that spark connection across the most staple gathering place for the culture – The Front Room. Together these three artists use their distinct multi-disciplinary practices to erect and consecrate a space that centers liberation from the deep social practice of self-containment and self-negation. A house is nothing but walls. However, a home is an intimate space that frees us from the labor of adaptation while also utilizing arrangement to guide interaction. The arrangement acts as a mirror, reflecting our placement and interaction with the world. Their collective work of material practice produces a place of reconciliation as we navigate through identity and memory. Curated by Pamela ‘Zee’ Lopez Del Carmen
